Ibanez SR2010ASC Ashula Bass - Limited Edition Fretted/Fretless Hybrid
Ibanez SR2010ASC Ashula Bass - Limited Edition Fretted/Fretless Hybrid 6-String Electric Bass
The world’s first fretted/fretless hybrid bass guitar. Most bassists like the sure and true notes of fretted basses, while others prefer the fluid and expressive tone of the fretless. Ibanez decided to give bass players a little of both-----------all in one bass. The SR2010ASC Ashula is the world’s first fret/fretless hybrid bass guitar. Four fretted strings are tuned normal E-A-D-G, to cover cool bass lines, while the two fretless strings are tuned to the same D and G as the fretted strings, for more fluid and dramatic fretless solo work. Ashula features a light ash body with 5-piece jatoba/bubinga neck, with onboard Ashula EQ. The special humbucking Sonic Arch pickups are double coiled in a single-coil housing. Get the best of both bass worlds and go hybrid with the SR2010ASC Ashula bass, only from Ibanez. Feat.
