    Product Description

    Without a doubt, your instrument should equal the quality of your effort. At some point the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, neck-thru construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously crafted instrument. But what about the price? That's where Ibanez comes in. Their ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

    Ibanez BTB1606E Premium 6-String Bass Features:

    • 9pc Wenge/Bubinga/Maple neck-thru
    • 35” Maple Neck with even tension and added sustain on the high strings
    • Saddle lock system that maximizes stability and focuses vibration transfer
    • Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups
    • Fully independent bass, treble and mid controls
    • Mid-frequency select switch
    • Gig bag included
    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. All components of the BTB1606E are interdependent, working together toward a superior performance: The Mono-Rail IV Bridge is the ultimate in string isolation for bass, which features a saddle lock system that maximizes stability and focuses vibration transfer.

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

    The active 3-Band EQ features fully independent bass, treble and mid controls with a wide boost/cut range, as well as a mid frequency switch fine-tuned specifically for the BTB. 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.

    Ibanez luthiers designed a 9pc Wenge/Bubinga/Maple neck-thru that achieves the trifecta of bass design: Surprising player comfort, extraordinary mechanical stability, and a visual spectacle that will impress anyone who appreciates masterly crafted wood.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I love this BTB, it's new features make it far better than the old version (own). The new pick ups gives it a much more better sound compared to the old bartolini pick ups. The EQ controls easily allows it to adjust the tone of your choice. This bass sounds amazing with any type of music. It's worth every penny.
