Ibanez BTB1605 Premium 5-String Bass Guitar
Looking at this beauty, the words "custom" and "boutique" instantly come to mind. Select materials, top-of-the-line components, and a neck-thru body are all included in this lovingly crafted bass. Your bass should match the quality of your efforts. That's where the showcase BTB series bass comes in.
Dynamic, responsive, and aggressive
- Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups
- 3-band EQ w/Mid Frequency Switch
- Neck-through construction
The BTB1605 has tone for days!
The artfully designed BTB1605 combines the best of all worlds in bass construction from tip to tail, or in this case bridge to headstock. The Mono-Rail bridge allows for the best in string-to-string isolation. Each string vibrates without affecting the others. The Gotoh machineheads with BLACK TUSQ XL nut allow for lossless tone whereas you'd lose precious string vibration in other cheaper components.
Longer scale, better sound!
Slapping and popping on a 5 or 6 string has had bass purists in a bind for years. With the 35" scale neck and isolated bridge, the BTB1605 offers even tension without flopping on the low strings. An added bonus, the neck-through body and longer scale allow for added sustain on the higher strings with clean articulation.
Secure high-tech Neutrik locking output jack
The cherry on top. The Neutrik locking jack gives you stable and safe connections preventing the accidental disconnection or vibration and shock to your amp or p.a.
