This is a very unique item: It started out as a regular Ibanez SR-405 5-string bass. However, I later had it converted to a fretless bass by Jim Mozell, in Calgary. Jim Mozell is, quite simply, one of the best guitar techs in this end of the Milky Way galaxy !
After removing the frets, Jim added a wood inlay to fill in the space left by each vacant fret. These inlays make it easy to see where you are playing, so converting from a fretted bass should not be a problem. Next, Jim installed high-quality flat-wound strings, to minimize wear on the neck. Finally, he reset the action and intonation for maximum playability. The sound is very natural and organic.
The standard features of the SR-405 remain intact:
• Two active EXF-N2 humbucker pickups provide a clear and
• Active / Passive electronics
• 3-band active equalization (Bass / Mids / Treble)
• Pearl dot inlays on the neck
• 34” scale
This is a terrific bass – it has terrific action, sounds wonderful and is completely unique. It also includes a gig bag.
