The SRF700 is a Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez for 2014. It is made in Indonesia as part of the Ibanez Bass Workshop line.

The SRF700 features neck through body construction with double-cutaway mahogany body wings attached to a maple and bubinga neck with a fretless rosewood fingerboard with no inlays. Components include a pair of Bartolini MK-1 split coil passive pickups with independent volume controls, an Ibanez custom preamp with a two-band EQ, a custom bridge with AeroSilk piezo pickups and 19mm string spacing, a plastic nut and Ibanez tuning machines. In addition to the controls on the front of the bass, there are a set of four trimpots on the rear cavity cover which allow you to dial in the piezo volume for each string individually.

For 2018 the rosewood fingerboard was replaced with panga panga and the maple and bubinga neck was replaced with maple and walnut. For 2019 the mahogany body wings were replaced with okoume.

The SRF705 and SRF706 are similar five and six string models.
