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.
- 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
- Neck-through construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
- Deep Cutaway
- 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.
- Zero fret
- 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.
- Ibanez 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.
