The Ibanez BTB605MS 5-string multi-scale electric bass reflects your dedication to your music with select-grade materials, neck-thru construction and top quality components, meticulously combined into a pro-level instrument. The okoume body provides a bright and solid sound while its 5-piece maple/walnut neck provides tonal clarity and upgraded attack, reinforced with graphite rods for massive sustain and stability. The panga panga fingerboard produces a tight low- and mid-range, as well as a sharp attack on the high end, and ensure you never miss a note with the 24 medium-sized, durable stainless-steel frets. The 37” scale provides strong tension for clear sounds even when it’s down tuned—combined with the 35” scale, it provides better string tension of higher strings, and smooth fingering due to gentler fret angles.

Its sound is driven by a set of T1 pickups, each with separate dual-coil construction to provide tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range and smooth response. Play across genres with their versatility, or dial into a specific tone by adjusting the height of each single coil individually for detailed sound sculpting. The EQ bypass control offers precision tonal adjustments, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit. Customize your sound further with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, featuring Boost and Cut for the Mid Control that are each centered on slightly different frequencies—an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones. Additional appointments include an MR5S bridge with adjustable saddles for specific string spacing, a 3-way Mid frequency switch to change the mid-tone between 250, 450, and 700 Hz and a hardshell case.
