About this item

That's where Ibanez comes in. Our ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

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, making it perfect for both 5 and 6-strings.

Neck-Through Construction

Neck-through 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.

Nordstrand Pickups

Nordstrand™ "Big Single" pickups provide the clarity of single coil pickups, while the large body gives players a full and aggressive tone.

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 HighTech Neutrik Locking Output Jack

Neutrik® locking jack provides stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.
