    Hey I saw that the Ibanez SRF705 bass has an extended
    30 fret fingerboard which is fricken cool and ive been wondering
    about getting a 6 string bass built with a 30 fret fingerboard.

    I’ve seen some demo videos of the bass on youtube but none of
    the bassists ever play single notes or chords in the 25th-30th fret zone
    so is it actually too awkward and uncomfortable to play anything in that area of the neck?

    Jkt, IDN
    rather than made a custom built, you could just buy the Portamento 6 string SRF706. You can also ask one of the owners on the following thread:
    Ibanez Portamento Club

    It's still playable on the 25th-30th fret zone, but yes, it's rather hard to play chords on that zone, because the bottom cutout to access that zone is actually rather limiting.
