A boutique quality 5-string with an exclusive exotic body wood at a working player's price.
The concepts behind boutique basses are often the justification for making them extremely expensive. With the advent of the BTB however, Ibanez decided that these same concepts of well-selected body materials, 35” neck scale, and deep cutaways could be applied to an instrument that anyone could afford. All the BTB basses feature neck-thru construction and deeper cutaways for enhanced playability and balance. In addition they also feature exclusively designed Bartolini® MK2 neck and bridge pickups, along with Bartolini® MK2 3-band EQ as well as a mono-rail II bridge. This allows each string to vibrate fully with no interference from the other strings so your playing is crisp and clear.
