Product Description

Rooted in the tradition of craftsmanship, Ibanez is pleased to introduce the BTB1905SM to the Premium BTB line. The BTB1905SM features a Solid Spalted Maple top and back. The African Mahogany body offers a superior tonal clarity and sound, while the Spalted Maple top and back provide a clear attack. The sleek body has a curved bevel that helps create a more elegant feel.

The durable stainless frets deliver a bright tone and the BTB1905SM features a zero fret for accurate intonation and minimal string height. The zero fret also helps the open strings sound the same as fretted notes. The MR5S bridge allows for a wide intonation adjustment range, and each isolated bridge is securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.

The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, EQ bypass switch, and 3-way midfrequency switch allow for precise tonal control (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz). When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble-tone control knob works as a passive tone control for the instrument’s output. The Aguilar DCB pickups provide well-developed overtones, singing sustain in the body and note decay. The pickups' dual ceramic bar magnets provide a dynamic and responsive attack. The combination of the EQ and the Aguilar pickups promises superior tonal possibilities for any playing situation.

The BTB1905SM comes strung with D’Addario NYXL strings which feature a large dynamic range and sensitive harmonic response. The deep cutaway of the lower horn allows effortless access to higher frets. The 18th fret neck joint of the upper horn provides massive tonal sustain and neck stability. The BTB’s 35-inch through-neck is constructed with 7 pieces of Panga Panga and Purpleheart and features 2 Graphite rods inside the neck for added 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 a Premium fret edge treatment, secure high-tech Neutrik locking output jack, and Gotoh machine heads. A gig bag is included.
