A boutique quality bass with Ibanez craftsmanship and thoughtful design at an affordable price.
Without a doubt, your instrument should equal the quality of your effort. At some point the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, neck-thru construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously crafted instrument. But what about the price? That's where Ibanez comes in. Their ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses. The BTB's extra-long 35" neck scale offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. It also provides superior articulation, making it perfect for 5-strings. Neck-thru construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability. The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets. The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others. BTB's string spacing is 19mm for 5-strings, and 17mm for 6-strings, offering more freedom on the fretboard, and comfortable access for finger picking and slapping. Nordstrand "Big Single" pickups provide the clarity of single coil pickups, while the large body gives players a full and aggressive tone. 3-band EQ with mid frequency switch fine-tuned specifically for the BTB. The active 3-band EQ features fully independent bass, treble, and mid Controls with a wide boost/cut range. The preamp system is equipped with a mid-frequency select switch, enabling you to instantly select 250Hz and 600Hz - the heart of the mid zone - for a more dynamic and ideal tone. its Neutrik locking jack provides stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.

Comments about Ibanez BTB1405E Premium 5-String Electric Bass:
Ibanez has been making basses for well over 20yrs. They have taken an older design an updated it with great electonics (Norstrand pre amp and P/U's). This update results in a sound of a bass selling for much more.
You can achieve a multitude of diffent sounds from this bass,from hot funk,smooth jazz,to blazing rock. Its a bass for many occasions.
For the money you really can't beat it,and it really,really looks good too!
Some people are into names,I'm into sound and quality!Big names and lots of money does not result in quality. Thsi is a great bass worthy of being put into the mid to upper range of basses.
