OVERVIEW

Get five strings of silky smooth low-end majesty.

Evolving and perfecting, the Ibanez BTB series has always aimed at expanding the player’s full range of creative expression. The elegant, curving, massive body of select tone woods and dedicated equipment provide huge tones. Neck-through construction with a 35-in scale, a two-octave fretboard and a super-deep cutaway promise sleek playability and rich sustain. The BTB series defines what the “Boutique Bass” is all about.

The Ash wing body with a Walnut top/Mahogany back brings a superior sound attack and a firm low end. The 35-in. scale 5pc Wenge/Bubinga/Maple through-neck provide a tight low end and massive sustain. The Rosewood fretboard has Stainless Steel frets for bright tone, and with high durability. It also has a zero fret for accurate intonation and minimal string action—opening the string sound to be the same as other frets.

Electronics include Bartolini BH2 pickups for tight bottom end, a full mid range with a smooth response. Combined with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/3-way Mid frequency switch, the BTB745 allows tonal variation which covers from simple chord work to complex soloing. The Mono-rail V allows for a wider intonation adjustment range and each isolated bridge is securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference. D'Addario NYXL strings are installed to expand the dynamic range and harmonic response. It also includes a high-tech Neutrik locking output jack for stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.

    Comments about Ibanez BTB745 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    I've played a lot of basses over the years and this one is the best bass under $2000 that I've ever played. The tone is amazing. The sustain of the sound lasts for what seems like minutes. The neck is comfortable, thin from top to bottom, but wide enough so that you can easily pluck away without touching another string. It is not as heavy as some claim it to be. I was expecting it to feel like a ton of bricks, but it isn't much heavier than any of my other basses. My only complaint is that is has a bit of a Les Paul problem with your right forearm area. It doesn't have contour to rest your arm on, so if you play with your bass up high it may feel a little uncomfortable. I wear a sweatband and it eliminates that problem. That is just a tiny gripe. The bass overall is wonderful. I love it and would highly recommend it to anyone.
