Huge range, great sustain and smooth playability.
The ever-evolving Ibanez BTB series has always aimed to expand the player’s range of creative expression. The elegantly contoured, massive body of select tone woods combines with dedicated hardware and electronics to produce huge, rich tones. Neck-through construction, a two-octave fretboard, and a super-deep cutaway, promise sleek playability and enduring sustain. The BTB series defines what the “Boutique Bass” is all about.
The BTB846SC is a 6-string bass featuring an Ash wing body with Poplar Burl top/Mahogany back that creates a sound that is response, articulate, and deep. A 35-in. scale, five-piece Maple/Rosewood through-neck provides superior resonance, and enhances sustain. The Rosewood fretboard sports highly-durable Stainless Steel frets that produce a clear, bright tone, and a “zero” fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
Electronics include Bartolini BH2 pickups for a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. Combined with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, with 3-way mid-frequency switch, the BTB846SC contains tonal variations that enhance simple chord work, as well as complex soloing. The Mono-rail V bridge allows for a wide range of adjustment, with each isolated saddle securely locked down to the body for optimum vibration transfer, and minimal sympathetic string interference. D'Addario NYXL strings are installed for expanding dynamic range and harmonic response. A high-tech Neutrik locking output jack insures a secure connection, preventing accidental disconnect.

Comments about Ibanez BTB846SC 6-String Electric Bass Guitar:
I have the older, Rosweood-topped BTB Single Cut 6 string as well.
The 35" spacing and thin neck make the tone across the strings consistent, and very easy to play.
34" 6 string basses are too cramped and the B string never rings as nicely.
Build quality, electronics, looks, are all top notch. I have several boutique and custom basses, but the Ibanez stuff is my favorite. Just perfect.
