Overview

Evolving and perfecting, the Ibanez BTB series has always aimed at expanding the player’s full range of creative expression. The elegant, curving, massive body of select tone woods and dedicated equipment provide huge tones. Neck-through construction with a 35-in scale, a two-octave fretboard and a super-deep cutaway promise sleek playability and rich sustain. The BTB series defines what the “Boutique Bass” is all about.

The Ash wing body with a Walnut top/Mahogany back brings a superior sound attack and a firm low end. The 35-in. scale 5pc Wenge/Bubinga/Maple through-neck provide a tight low end and massive sustain. The Rosewood fretboard has Stainless Steel frets for bright tone, and with high durability. It also has a zero fret for accurate intonation and minimal string action—opening the string sound to be the same as other frets.

Electronics include Bartolini BH2 pickups for tight bottom end, a full mid range with a smooth response. Combined with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/3-way Mid frequency switch, the BTB745 allows tonal variation which covers from simple chord work to complex soloing. The Mono-rail V allows for a wider intonation adjustment range and each isolated bridge is securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference. D'Addario NYXL strings are installed to expand the dynamic range and harmonic response. It also includes a high-tech Neutrik locking output jack for stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.

    Comments about Ibanez BTB745 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I have an Ibanez SR, 4 string, a Fender American Standard P-Bass, and was looking for a 5 string to get started with. Purchased this bass and have to say the richness of the tone is absolutely stunning. The neck does seem a little wide, but that suits me just fine. The amount of tone control with the three band EQ and the selectable mid band frequency is great. Also really like the ability to blend between the neck and bridge pickups. The finish on the bass is as good as any I have seen. The photo's do not do it justice. Surprisingly, for a Mahogany / Ash / Walnut body, the instrument is not particularly heavy. I really don't have anything bad to say about this bass other than to be careful, if you pick it up, you will love it.

    Comments about Ibanez BTB745 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I've had a 4 string p bass for years and it was time to upgrade. I agonized and did a ton of research over what bass to buy and landed on this one which was at the top of my budget. As I played several basses I really loved the sound of the Bartolini pickups.
    My sound guys have commented over and over again about how much more they like the sound of this bass compared to what I had! I was worried that a 35" scale 5 string would be challenging since my hands are so small but it has been an easy adjustment and feels perfect in my hands in a few weeks of playing!
    The only thing that feels awkward is the cable lock system, but its just something I've never used before.
