Timeless and beautiful, the Ibanez BTB845 5-string bass goes right to work adding deep, complex, and punchy sounding bass tones. The BTB845's sleek body has a curved bevel that helps create a more elegant feel with beautiful figuring, swirls and darker pockets of Poplar Burl body top. The Ash and Okoume winged body feature a warm tone with rich resonance and superior sonic attack.
The MR5 bridge allows a wide intonation adjustment range, and each isolated bridge works for maximum vibration transfer without interference. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ and 3-way midfrequency switch allow for precise tonal control (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz).
The Bartolini BH2 dual-coil pickups with a rich low frequency provide a balanced, warm response with a tight bottom end and full midrange. The BTB845 comes strung with D’Addario NYXL strings for a large dynamic range and sensitive harmonic response.
The deep cutaway of the lower horn allows effortless access to higher frets and the 18th fret neck joint of the upper horn provides tonal sustain and neck stability. The BTB’s 35-inch through-neck is constructed with 5 pieces of Maple and Walnut, providing massive sustain and excellent stability. Moreover, the neck end adjustment allows you to adjust the neck easily. The extended scale length helps create a clear sound and sufficient string tension for the lower strings while adding ringing sustain to the upper strings.
Other features include the secure, high-tech Neutrik locking output jack.
