The BTB745 is a 5-string bass featuring an ash wing body, with a walnut top/mahogany back, for a sound that is deep and rich. The 35” scale, 5-piece maple/rosewood through-neck supports superior tone, and encourages massive sustain. A rosewood fretboard sports highly-durable stainless steel frets, to create a bright, articulate sound, and a zero fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
The Mono-rail V bridge allows for a wide range of adjustment, with each isolated saddle securely locked down to the body for optimum vibration transfer, and minimal sympathetic string interference. D'Addario NYXL strings are installed to expand dynamic range and harmonic response. A high-tech Neutrik locking output jack insures a secure connection, preventing accidental disconnect.
The ever-evolving Ibanez BTB series has always aimed to expand the player’s range of creative expression. The elegantly contoured, massive body of select tone woods combines with dedicated hardware and electronics to produce huge, rich tones. Neck-through construction, a two-octave fretboard, and a super-deep cutaway, promise sleek playability and enduring sustain. The BTB series defines what the “Boutique Bass” is all about.
