I just got this bass about 3 weeks ago and I can't put it down. The action on this bass is perfect, and there is no tone that this bass can't achieve. This is one sexxxy bass, and the pictures on this website do it no justice. I was looking at getting an MTD 6 string, but after receiving this bass, and playing around with it for several hours I know that I made the right choice. So if you are in the market for a new and very versatile 6 string bass, you don't have to look any further, because this is the last bass you will ever need.

I have to advise skipping this one. There are a lot of 35 inch scale 6 strings by other companies that are routed for the 4.5 inch standard sized pickups and some already have good pickups in them. When a bass is routed for that size you have a whole line of options from EMG, an option from Lace, some options from Seymour duncan and many more options from other lesser known companies. I'm happy with this bass after having it modified, but I wish I could have skipped all of that.
This bass has a lot of little things that were well thought out. The battery compartment has metal for the screws to go into so it doesn't wear out. The bridge pieces are staggered to help intonation. The ability to drop the strings into the saddles is a cool feature. The locking jack I'm not so much for since it could topple your rig. The finish looks great and is flawless. The neck thru design is rather nice. The matching headstock is pleasing to the eye.
This bass has perfect fit and finish. It is aesthetically flawless and the craftmanship is excellent. The frets feel great. It is a really well built instrument. The fatal flaw is the pickups. The pickups are the worst pickups I had ever heard, which is saying a lot. I can't really describe how bad they sound, but in short they have no clarity. The stock pickups in a squier bass are leaps and bounds better than the ones that ship in these. The issue that makes that a huge deal instead of a minor inconvenience is that they are a unique size and you can't just swap them out. As soon as I got this bass in, I played it and noticed the problem with the sound immediately. I realized the pickup routes were an odd size after the return period and regrettted my purchase. I didn't touch it for a year and then took it to a luthier to have it routed for the standard 4.5 inch sized pickups. Now it is a dream, but out of the box it's a nightmare.
This bass is a lot of build quality for the money. However it takes $500 or more worth of work and parts to make it sound good enough to use.

    Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

    Bottom Line, up front: I love this bass, but I replaced every piece of electronics in it to get there.

    This is my bass, I use it for recording, live gigs, rehearsals, etc. I love it and I'm just putting out my personal opinion on what has worked for me. I get compliments on the appearance and sound of the bass everytime I play though.

    I bought this bass and loved the feel of it. My old 6 string, an Ibanez SR series, was too narrow in the neck for my taste. I also wanted a neck- thru design and something with a little more flair. The finish on this bass delivers. I get comments on its beauty everytime I pull it out of the case.
    The construction is solid, and it plays great if you like the wider neck. I concur with the others on here who have said it is built like a boutique bass worth four or five hundred more. That being said, the electronics are not up to that standard. The neutrik locking input jack broke within a month, and I replaced it with a regular quarter inch input. I'm not a fan of the locking jack anyway. Bartolini makes great pickups, however, I've never been a fan of the stock pickups they make for Ibanez and other companies. I replaced these pickups with Delano dual coils and even my singer noticed the difference in tone quality. The lows were much deeper and more resonant, the highs were brighter, etc. I swapped the stock Ibanez pre amp with an Aguilar OPB3 and definitely noticed an improvement there. So I essentially took the bass and put the electronics of a high end boutique bass like Mayones in it and called it good. This got the sound I was looking for with the playability that the BTB provides. I refuse to buy a bass unless I've played it or something very similar, and so I was able to try this one out at the local music store, and then upgrade the electronics to get the sound I wanted. Some players may like the sound as is, and if so great. I personally would recommend you throw some EMGs Nordstrand or Delano pickups in this bass at minimum. Granted you will have to get a luthier to route out the pickup cavity a little, but its worth it. So if you want to spend more money up front, and do less work aftermarket by all means get a G&L or MTD etc. However I love the look and feel of the BTB so I spent the extra time and money to upgrade it to the quality of those other basses. This way, the bass is very much mine, and has my tailored sound. Personal decision and preference for me, do what you will with my advice. But IMO this bass is definitely worth the extra money when you fit it with some high speed electronics, and it will go toe to toe with a much more expensive bass.

    Very Nice Bass

    By Jarrod Harper

    from Philadelophia, PA

    Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

    I purchased this bass as my entry bass for a six string. I can honestly say that I do not forsee needing a diferent 6 string any time soon. I have been playing a 4 string Warwick Thumb Bass for several years, so tone is important to me. This bass has an excellent tone and coming from a 4 string to a six was not difficult at all because of the great feel on the neck. The strings are spaced well to allow for various playing styles, while still being close enough together to not make the neck too wide. The soound is absolutely great. There are so many different tones that you can get wiuth this bass that it almost feels like having several basses in one. Very versitile. My only complaint is that the initial set up on the bass that I received had the action too low. This resulted in fret buzz at variouys pooints of the neck and if you played aggressively. Should be an easy fix though. All in all, I love this bass. It looks stunning and makes you want to play. It sounds great and is versitile enough for me to use this one bass for any of the styles that I play on gigs (Gospel, Jazz, R&B/Funk, NeoSoul). Also, the weight is good.

      It was perfect right out of the box, no set up needed.

      Musicians Friend and Ibanez have again sent me a great playing machine.

      WOW!

      By BRANDON MAZENKO

      from Corona Ca

      Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

      Let me tell all of you, I honestly can say this bass is awesome. I have put this bass up against custom made basses costing 3 or 4 times more than this and it still blew them away. This is a nice bass for the money. I love how the bridge is designed, each string is separate from the other strings, thus I never get any noise from other strings ringing. The low b on this is clear, that is because of the 35 inch scale. Also the pickups are awesome, if you have the neck pickup rolled up you can get an almost stand up bass sound on it, the bridge pickup is great for a slap tone. Having both pickups on you can get this very mid range punch which sounds very nice. So over all, nice bass and I love it. Worth the money!

      Great buy!!!

      By Kook a Tron Z

      from Hawaii

      Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

      Overall, this is an awesome bass. Buy it. Again, the fact that it plays much higher than its pricepoint is a real plus for this line.
      Many ways to shape your tone with this instrument.
      This is actually my 2nd BTB 6 string. I sold the first one and regretted it. It has massive tone and a spectacular aesthetic. Unfortunately, this one, unlike the first one, needed some set up. However, I live in Hawaii, and the first time around may have been luck. After a few days, the B and E strings sat flat on the neck. Now that my Luthier has finshed the set up, it is epic!!
      I own many basses, a majority of them "boutique". For the price, this is an outstanding instrument. (more along the lines of a bass in the $1700 range). I apprecitate the value/bang for the buck.

      amazing instrument!

      By TadSharpe

      from miami fl

      Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

      I own other basses from schecter, cort, fender, handmade, peavy, takamine, dean, bc rich, plus Ibanez AFB200 and BTB405 models, THIS ONE ROCKS! its good, has a nice tone to it, its workable and plays well, and records REALLY QUIET with zero noise!
      It has a three band eq that lets me dial in all sorts of tones from early brit tones to ska and reggae, metal and industrial, latin riddems and beats for my brothas... ITS SOOOO PRETTY, and curvy, and NICE to touch and play with, like some of my other fav things in live... I have another btb, the 405, and it has a parametric on board, that would have been nice, BUT the electronics on this is superb!

      the neck is a BIT wide, but adjusting my wrist a slight bit does the trick.... its a comfy neck.

      The pickups sound a bit muffled, but thru my hartke bass attack pedal I can solve that issue.....

      it plays VERY WELL, but it is a heavy beastly thing.... I play sitting in a comfy studio's couch, so I'm good!
      pristine! absolutely GORGEOUS finish and nice neck!
      I'd buy another if this one got jacked.....

      best bass ive ever owned

      By zachary hutchison

      from billings mt

      Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

      BUY THIS BASS!!!!!
      this bass will do everything you will ever need, the pick ups and preamp have more tone control than any active sound ive ever got out of my spectors or my conklin gt7. the neck is very thick overall but i have tiny hands and can still navigate it really well(like really small). everything has been thought of even the locking input jack the only thing i wish is that ibanez made a 7 string version of this cause id sell everything i own
      beautifully executed wood work, and the finish is perfect(no air bubbles or anything) the bass came with elixir nanowebs which are usually my choice of string anyway so that was a bonus(and this is much apricated to get quality strings right of the bat instead blowing all your money and having to deal with nicklewound garbage)
      killer deal for anyone looking to get an extended range bass that wont cost a lot in quality
      especially cause i have a few basses like that and they are pretty much neck and neck

      Top of the line bass at a reasonable price.

      By MrMontuno

      from Wichita, KS

      Comments about Ibanez BTB776PB 6-String Bass Guitar:

      First of all - I could not be more pleased with this bass.The woods and craftmanship are top of the line and the fret work is supurb. The BTB looks and feels like a bass that cost much much more than it does. But all those looks mean nothing if it doesn't sound good and this bass sounds great. The Bartolini's, three band eq and 18v electronics cover just about any sound you could possibly want. The first time I plugged this thing in I couldn't believe the rich tone or the amount of headroom on the volume knob. I've played Jazz, Latin, Rock, Country - just about every style and I can always dial in a tone that sounds great.This is not a beginner bass, but if you are looking for a professional quality instrument at a reasonable price this bass is it. I have never played or owned a nicer bass than my BTB776PB and I've been playing bass for over 30 years. It has been without a doubt the best gear purchase I've ever made.
