Ibanez Introduces the SRH Semi-Hollow Bass

Besides celebrating the 30th anniversary of the SR this year, Ibanez also introduced a new semi-hollow body model called the SRH. The bass comes in four and five-string versions with the option of fretted or fretless fingerboards, all of which all built with a mahogany semi-hollow body and a spruce top.

The body has a single f-hole with a special forearm contour for comfort. Its five-piece jatoba and bubinga neck has a contoured heel that creates a deep neck joint, offering better access to the highest registers of the bound rosewood fingerboard.

For electronic, Ibanez fits the SRH with a custom bridge with the AeroSilk piezo system. Four trim pots on the back of the bass allow for adjusting the gain of each string individually. Check out bassist Benjamin Shepherd’s demo:

The Ibanez SRH is coming soon with street prices of $699.99 for the four-string and $749.99 for the five-string.
