BTB

Without a doubt, your instrument should equal the quality of your effort. At some point the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, neck-thru construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously crafted instrument. But what about the price? That's where Ibanez comes in. Our ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

FEATURES

Upper Horn

This extended Upper Horn creates constant contact with the Maple/Bubinga neck from the 12th to the 24th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain.

Contoured Neck Scoop

The back of the neck is sculpted for comfort and easy access to the very highest notes. The smooth, graceful contour allows the palm of the left hand to move quickly and easily as it transitions up the neck, into the underside of the bass's Ash body.

BTB 5pc Maple / Rosewood 35" Scale Through-Neck

The Maple/Rosewood combination creates one of the strongest Through-Necks available. The density of the Rosewood, combined with the strength of the Maple, increases stability and sustain through the entire body of the bass. The 35" scale provides a bit more tension for the low B and improves definition in the lower range.

Stainless steel frets

The stainless steel frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on.

Zero fret

A "zero" fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.

Mono-rail V bridge

The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.

Bartolini® BH2 pickups

The Bartolini® BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.

Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/Mid frequency switch

The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/3-way mid-frequency switch offers tonal variations that enhance simple chord work as well as complex soloing.

Secure high-tech Neutrik® locking output jack

Neutrik® locking jack provides stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.
