The Ibanez SR Prestige SR7VIISC 7-string guitar/bass hybrid is a unique hybrid bass with tuning in the same E-A-D-G-B-E intervals as a guitar"the SRVIISC combines lower strings of the contemporary 6-string bass (B-E-A-D-G-C), then adds a high E 7th string. With this tuning, the SR7VIISC can be played as a standard bass guitar, but also allows forays into lead guitar territories for the adventurous bassist.
The 30" short scale allows the instrument to be played as a guitar while still maintaining the necessary tension for a bass. The string spacing is 11mm, slightly wider than a guitar but much narrower than an electric bass, allowing for playing chords in a guitar-like fashion, but it does not work as well for slapping or fingerpicking. The pickups work as standard bass models, but the bridge pickup has two single coils connected in series, which can simulate a guitar lead humbucker. As with many other Ibanez basses, the 7-string SR7VIISC features the tonally versatile Ibanez Vari-Mid EQ.
