Ibanez Product Overview
The SRH500F-NNF, SR’s semi-hollow body model, is finally available. The SR‘s 55-mm-thick semi-hollow body has a Spruce top with a Mahogany back, so the hollow space is maximised. The construction gives the SRH a warm acoustic sound with rich resonance. A Natural Browned Burst flat finish, wood truss rod cover, wood control knobs, and black matte hardware give the SRH an authentic semi-hollow look and feel.
SRH inherits not only the SR shape but also its superior playability. The special elbow cut on the top of the body provides both playing comfort (the width of the cut meets various demands of elbow positioning) and an elegant appearance. The contoured, deep neck joint provides unfettered access to even the highest frets. In addition, the extended fretboard on the lower register can be used as a finger rest. The SRH comes with D’Addario ECB81 flat, wound strings that accentuate the model’s warm and rich resonance. The custom bridge contains the magic of the AeroSilk Piezo system that works with flat, wound strings to provide a sense of air to the ear that characterises its upright sound.
Along with its stylish, traditional SR appearance, the SRH maintains a warm resonance and versatility with its lightweight, compact body for comfortable playing. The SRH500F-NNF is a fretless version of the SRH500. In this model, the fretboard features black fret lines that balance competing goals for guiding positions and keep the fretboard from disturbing the atmosphere expected in a fretless layout. The SRH500’s look, feel, and sound provide a unique and distinctive addition to the world of semi-hollow bass guitars.
