    For sale is an Ibanez SRF705 Portamento 5-string fretless bass, in beautiful like-new condition, the plastic is still on one of the back plates. This is an amazing bass for the fretless player, with access to 30 neck positions, and it is super lightweight, weighing right at 7 pounds 10 ounces.
    20170102_142302.
    The neck is a 5-piece Maple/ Bubinga thru-neck and a rosewood fingerboard, with 34" scale, 1 3/4" width at the nut and a 12" radius, and 16.5mm string spacing at the bridge. The body wings are Mahogany. There are two Bartolini MK-1 pickups and the AeroSilk piezo system. The electronics include master volume, balance and bass & treble controls for the Bartolini MK-1 pickups and a master volume and a tone control for the Piezo system. More info at the Ibanez site here.

    According to Ibanez:
    Based on the serial number this is a 2014 model, I traded for it here. It plays and sounds great, but since my Fodera arrived I have no need for another fretless 5-er, so this one is for sale. I'm looking to downsize but open to trades for other basses, 4- or 5-string, fretted or fretless.

    Bass ships strung with (maybe original?) flatwound strings and a new battery. This bass will ship it in a Warwick Rockbag gig bag. It will be wrapped in bubble wrap and packed in a new cardboard box.

    This bass retails for $950 plus $99 for the gig bag, I’m asking $750$700, PayPal is fine, contact me about other payment methods. Free delivery anywhere in the Houston area. Will ship to continental US for free or to Alaska/Hawaii for actual shipping. No International shipping, sorry.

    Feel free to ask questions in the comments or PM me directly. Thanks for your interest!

    Thank you T.Rex for the information on the new CITES requirements, I appreciate that, and I've updated the posting to reflect no international shipping.

    fantastic bass, just love my 4 strings one. When played right this bass just sings.
    Piezo pickup is stunning.
    Sold my fretless sb4000 carvin and kept this one, glad I did.
    GLWTS And Happy new year.

    PS would you be able to elaborate on the CITES requirements? What do they mean?

    There are some new species of wood (including all types of rosewood) that are protected under the CITES treaty, requiring certificates documentation of country of origin for international shipping. There's a good explanation here.

    Make me an offer, I'd rather sell it here on TB than on the bay.
