- Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ
- Mono-rail V bridge
- Rosewood fretboard
- Bartolini BH2 pickups
The BTB845 is a 5-string bass featuring an ash wing body with poplar burl top/mahogany back that creates a sound that is response, articulate, and deep. A 35” scale, 5-piece maple/rosewood through-neck provides superior resonance, and enhances sustain. The rosewood fretboard sports highly-durable stainless steel frets that produce a clear, bright tone, and a zero fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
Electronics include Bartolini BH2 pickups for a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. Combined with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, with 3-way mid-frequency switch, the BTB845 contains tonal variations that enhance simple chord work, as well as complex soloing. 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 for expanding dynamic range and harmonic response. A high-tech Neutrik locking output jack insures a secure connection, preventing accidental disconnect.
