armybass, you have the two Ibanez basses which I had really wanted, the SRF706 and the BTB685MSC. Not that the BTB685SC (the original rosewood fretboard version) that I have is worse. It's just that I had wanted to own a 5 string bass with maple fretboard and 19mm string spacing for quite some times. The BTB685MSC surely meets all criteria. And the other one, the SRF706, which is the 6 string version of SRF705 that I have, I gave up an old 6 string fretless bass of mine for the SRF705, which obviously couldn't truly replace the old one. I've asked the local Ibanez distributor for both models (the BTB685MSC and SRF706). Unfortunately, none could be brought in despite being made here in Indonesia. They said because Ibanez principal didn't list the two (as well as many others) for our market.
