Ibanez BTB33NTF Workshop Series 5-String Bass Guitar

Just by looking at the BTB33NTF, you'd almost guess this was handcrafted by a fine luthier.  Extreme care went into the design of the neck-through body, and the bass is crafted with fine selections of Maple and Bubinga.  Ibanez included their patented Finger Ramp in between the Bartolini pickups for faster finger speed on this magnificent bass!

Superior Tone and Design

  • 3-band Eq with Mid-Frequency Switch
  • Mono-rail V Bridge for excellent string isolation
  • Neck-through body for great sustain

Your custom tone in a simplified Eq package!

The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band Eq allows you to mold your tone to play all styles of bass.  Bass, Mid, and High frequency controls are fully independent with a large cut/boost range.  

Sustain for days!

The 5-piece Bubinga/Maple neck-through design along with the isolated string bridge give the bass a clarity and sustain unparalleled at this price point.  No extra string vibration means the note you play is the only note you'll hear without sympathetic vibration!

A stunning bass with the all the frills!

Once again...just look at it!  A natural wood finish is the perfect treatment for these select woods, and make it extremely easy to care for.  Add the Finger Ramp, Neutrik Locking output jack, and the Graph Tech® BLACK TUSQ XL® nut, and you've got a tricked out custom-looking axe that sounds great and looks incredible in any professional situation!

Add this bass to your bass arsenal!

    From The Manufacturer

    The concepts behind boutique basses are often the justification for making them extremely expensive. With the advent of the BTB however, Ibanez decided that these same concepts of well-selected body materials, 35" neck scale, and deep cutaways could be applied to an instrument that anyone could afford. All the BTB basses feature neck-thru construction and deeper cutaways for enhanced playability and balance.
