The BTB1805 is a 5-string bass featuring an ash wing body with a rosewood top and back, for tonal clarity and a superior attack in sound. The 35” scale 9-piece wenge/bubinga/maple neck-through design is supported with graphite rods for massive sustain and excellent stability. A rosewood fretboard sports stainless steel frets with premium fret edge treatment for a bright tone, high durability and super smooth playability. A zero fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
