The BTB775PB 5 string bass offers a huge tone, a gorgeous poplar burl top and is excellent for low tunings.
The Ibanez exclusive Bartolini BH1 pickups deliver a fat tone with a warm response and superior dynamics. The deeper cutaways allow upper fret accessibility that BTB players have come to love. Plus the massive 5 piece maple/bubinga 35 inch scale thru-neck just adds to the playability of this great sounding 5 string electric bass.
Thru-Neck and Deep Cutaway
The BTB's 5-piece Maple/Bubinga thru-neck design, along with its extreme cutaways, make every note on the 35" scale fretboard a player's playground.
35 Inch 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-thru construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.
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.
