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. Ibanez's ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.
35" SCALE NECK
The BTB's extra-long 35-inch neck scale offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. It also provides superior articulation, making it perfect for 7-string.
Neck-through construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.
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.
A "zero" fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
AGUILAR DCB PICKUPS
The BTB Premium features Aguilar DCB pickups, providing a dynamic and responsive attack, well-developed overtones, and singing sustain. Combined with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/EQ bypass switch, and 3-way mid frequency switch, the BTB Premium offers immense tonal possibilities for any playing situation.
CUSTOM ELECTRONICS 3-BAND EQ W/EQ BYPASS SWITCH & MID FREQUENCY SWITCH
Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
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.
GOTOH MACHINE HEADS
The Gotoh machine heads offer superior tuning stability.
SECURE HIGH-TECH NEUTRIK LOCKING OUTPUT JACK
Neutrik locking jack provides stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.
