Overview

Ibanez's "Beyond The Boundaries" line of BTB basses adds its boldest member yet, BTB7E. By adding a higher "F" to their 6-string configuration, they've given the bassist even more of what BTB is all about rich sonic response, a wide range of musical possibility, as well as comfort & playability that never ceases to amaze. State-of-the-art manufacturing and artful instrument design commingle in this incredible bass. It is for the exploring musician, the bassist whose harmonic imagination years to evolve upward into monophonic tonalities and harmonies that most basses cannot satisfy.

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.

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.

Bartolini Pickups
Balancing clarity with warmth is the hallmark of the new Bartolini pickup. Coils with lower resonant frequency provide tighter bottom end and full midrange. Also, the dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation. A long blade polepiece widens the magnetic field, therefore, whether five-string or six, sound level is balanced by the ultra-precise vibration reaction of the longer coils.

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.

Comments about Ibanez BTB7E 7-String Electric Bass Guitar:

Wonderfully designed; the double cut away is a really nice feature, even more so having such a wide neck being a 7-string. nice abalone inlay and my BTB-7 came in a case in its shipment box. locking black case with gray velvet inside with a storage compartment located under where the neck lays.

    Comments about Ibanez BTB7E 7-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    First, a major beef I have that hasn't been addressed on the GC website yet: this model, as can be seen in the pictures, has CAP pickups, not Bartolinis as stated in the specifications. The pickups are good, but don't order online expecting Bartolinis.

    The BTB7 is probably the best off-the-shelf 7 I've played, and I've played most of them. It's built well, has good stock electronics (although I replaced them with a Michael Pope preamp after a year or so) and a great feel. The sound is appropriate for pretty much any style you can think of with appropriate adjustments, from jazz to rock to reggae and funk.

    For a stock bass, there's really nothing to complain about, but I would like to mention that the default hardshell case is VERY flimsy and will not hold up for longer than a few months of serious gigging. So definitely plan on replacing it with something more solid if you're playing out a lot!
