Overview

The mission of the Ibanez Bass Workshop is to pioneer new frontiers in bass development by pushing the boundaries of conventional designs. The impetus behind each one of these unique instruments comes from the desire of the Ibanez bass development group to satisfy the specific needs of a very particular player and to hopefully inspire new vistas of creativity.

Designed for players looking to explore the upper region of the fretboard, the BTB33 is a 5-string bass tuned from E to C. Excellent for playing chords and soloing up by a 33 scale neck. This 5-piece Maple/Bubinga Medium Scale neck helps to create the proper tension and tonal quality for the C string without compromising the deep tone of the E string. It also facilitates faster playing and easier chording.

Another innovative feature of the BTB33 is the inclusion of a height adjustable Rosewood Finger Ramp. The ramp prevents players from digging in too hard when plucking finger-style and encourages a lighter playing technique, which helps promote a broader dynamic range and better tone. It also acts as a thumb rest that provides access to a wider plucking area, allowing players to explore more tonal options by varying the distance of their hand from the bridge.

The BTB33 includes a Mahogany with an Ash top, the neck sports a Rosewood fingerboard with Abalone inlays and a Mono-Rail V bridge provides optimum adjustment for superior intonation. Electronics feature the excellent tone of Bartolini BH1-5 pickups through an Ibanez 3-band EQ with a mid frequency selector switch for advanced tone control.

Comments about Ibanez BTB33 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

Played this bass at Guitar center on South cobb drive it was a used bass but still sound great. Only thing the bass sounded like it was going out of tune but that may have been the battery need changing out I have wittness this problem before on most active bass. Also its tuned from E to C so you have the advantage of using the high C string and the buttom E no need for the low B. Ounce again this is a bad "A" bass.

Comments about Ibanez BTB33 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

looks great,
however i am a beginner
there was no one from the store who could educate me on the bass itself
i left their disappointed with the sales help i didn't get nor did it come with owners Manuel
i assume its my own fault for buying something i knew nothing about.
i plan on returning the item by day 45 for a full refund.
or i could keep it as art work and hang it on my wall.
