    SR2010ASC Ashula Mint Condition $1000.00 + shipping Traded
    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.
    Included OHSC & Case candy

    Just wanted to mention that while this side by side configuration may be a "first" there's been basses with hybrid fretted/fretless necks in the past.

    Kramer offered it as a fingerboard option in the 80s, fretted to the 9th fret, fretless above that.

    There was also some crazy neck design where the frets retracted into the neck, I forget who came out with that.

    Still this Ibanez is a cool bass.

    One of the coolest basses I've played...

    I believe it's the only Ibanez 6 stringer that has a 34" scale and 19mm string spacing at the bridge (since that's what most 4 stringers are). At some point in the future, I'm thinking of picking one up, fretting the whole board, and reworking the pickups so it's a fretted 6er. Doing all this would still be less expensive than custom ordering a 6er with a 34 scale and the desired string spacing.

    I wish the pickups in these Ashulas were available aftermarket. They sound really cool. Good ballsy tone. I'd love to put some in my Jaguar.

    I've seen a few old Ibanez Musician basses like that as well. Brown's Guitar Factory makes one like that, too, with a Kahler trem, even.
