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

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.

Jatoba Fretboard

Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.

Zero fret

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

MR5S bridge

The saddles can be adjusted +/-1.5mm, to answer to the bassist's detailed demands and to help finding out the best string spacing for many playstyles.

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
