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. Their ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring, yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

Thru-Neck & Deep Cutaway
The BTB's 5-piece Maple/Bubinga thru-neck design, along with its extreme cutaways, make every note on the 35" scale fretboard a player's playground.

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 both 5 and 6-strings.

Neck-Thru Construction
Neck-thru construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.

Deep Cutaway
The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.

Mono-Rail Bridge
The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others. BTB's string spacing is 19mm for 5-strings, and 17mm for 6-strings, offering more freedom on the fretboard, and comfortable access for finger picking and slapping.

3-band EQ w/Mid Frequency Switch
3-band EQ with mid-frequency switch fine-tuned specifically for the BTB. The active 3-Band EQ features fully independent bass, treble, and mid Controls with a wide boost/cut range. The preamp system is equipped with a mid-frequency select switch, enabling you to instantly select 250Hz and 600Hz - the heart of the mid zone - for a more dynamic and ideal tone.

Secure high-tech Neutrik locking output jack
Neutrik locking jack provides stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.
