The word ‘boutique' gets thrown around a lot these days and in some instances, it doesn't quite live up to its billing. When Ibanez makes an instrument that references the term, they make sure to back it up and leave no doubt. Say hello to the Ibanez BTB lineup of basses - timeless, beautiful, and rooted in the tradition of craftsmanship. BTB instruments incorporate stunning combinations of different woods - Ash, Walnut, Maple, and Poplar, among others - and are finished to bring out their rich colors while highlighting the detail of the wood grain. Anchored by those build foundations and neck-thru construction, Ibanez BTB goes right to work adding deep, complex, and punchy sounding bass tones from heavyweight names in pickups, including Bartollini, Aguilar, and Nordstrand.
