A visual masterpiece that is designed for demanding bassists! The Ibanez BTB1405E Premium 5 String Bass Guitar is a high quality crafted instrument with professional features and gorgeous tonewoods. To start, the 35 inch scale means slightly increased tension, particularly to the lower strings, negating any sense of string floppiness. The super-deep cutaway provides a musical invitation in the form of access to an entire higher octave.
Turn the BTB1405E Premium bass over and you’ll see a 7-piece Maple/Bubinga/Walnut neck that is a true masterpiece. With its mahogany body, and a select AAA grade figured Maple top, the Ibanez BTB1405E is as visually striking as it is rewarding to play. The precision crafted thru-neck construction, a Rosewood fretboard, and the Mono-Rail IV bridge, all contribute to the BTB1405E’s musical liveliness.
Slide your hand up and down the fingerboard and you’ll notice the smoothness of the fret edges. That’s part of what Ibanez calls the ‘Premium Treatment.’ The hand rolled frets, the product of a skilled hand-crimping process that produces noticeably smooth fret edges. Nordstrand Big Single pickups provide a full, loud, and aggressive single-coil tone.
