The Iron Label BTB625EX 5-string bass guitar provides a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The Iron Label line was originally developed with metal and nothing but metal in mind. We modded and tweaked until we got to the heaviest-hitting metal axes we’ve ever built. They’re purposefully spartan, and you won’t find a feature here that doesn't contribute directly to a bone rattling, earth shattering tones these guitars pump out. Carrying forward that same philosophy, the next generation of Iron Label guitars take this raw metal energy to a completely new level. They sport totally blacked out looks, and their supercharged electronics amounting to some of the heaviest-swinging metal axes we’ve ever produced.

The 5pc Maple/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior attack. The Graphite reinforcement rods provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
Ebonol is a synthetic material which is made from layers of black paper and phenolic resin. An Ebonol fretboard provides tight and bright sound.
Medium Stainless Steel Frets:
The Stainless Steel frets are durable and long-lasting.
The Okoume body provides a bright and solid sound.
Bartolini BH2 Pickups:
The Bartolini BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-Band EQ:
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.
The Mono-Rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
3-Way Mid Frequency Switch:
The 3-way Mid frequency switch allow players to change the mid-tone between 250, 450, and 700 Hz.
The neck-through construction contributes to massive sustain and smooth access to high fretboard positions.
