The Ibanez BTB1406E Premium 6 String Bass Guitar is a visual and sonic masterpiece designed especially for the working pro. Ibanez gives the bass bold design advantages that are usually only found in instrument costing much more. 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 allows access to an entire higher octave.
Turn the bass over and prepare to be amazed! The neck of the BTB1406E is a 7-piece Maple/Bubinga/Walnut masterpiece. With its mahogany body and select AAA grade figured Maple top, the Ibanez BTB1406EVNF is as visually striking as it is rewarding to play. The precision crafted thru-neck construction, Rosewood fretboard, and the Mono-Rail IV bridge, all contribute to the BTB1406E’s musical liveliness.
Slide your hand up and down the fingerboard, noticing 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.
