What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Figured maple top Beautiful wood grain; brighter tone
Mahogany wings Rich, warm tone and smooth resonance
Nordstrand Big Single 6 pickups Large-format single-coil design for huge tone
AAAA-grade flamed maple top Artisan-grade wood enhances the guitar's beauty
A bass that's capable of laying down grooves in just about any genre, the Ibanez BTB1406E not only gives you six-string range, but the tonewoods and components for a great playing experience.

Extended Neck for Tight Sound

The 35" scale of the BTB's neck adds a bit of tension on the strings, helping ensure your low-end notes sound clear and don't buzz along the frets. The 7-piece neck is crafted of maple, bubinga, and walnut, lending it an elegant striped pattern. It is set into the body and reinforced with graphite rods for enhanced stability and resonance. The neck is topped with a rosewood fretboard and the body's deep cutaways give you access all the way up the neck.

Solid Build to Handle Rumble

This BTB bass combines a maple top and a mahogany body for a crisp tone that is able to articulate its extended six-string range. The body also features tone-enhancing components like a Mono-Rail IV bridge, which not only uses locking saddles, but isolates each string in its own independent saddle to eliminate any vibration interference.

Clear Single-Coil Sound

The BTB is outfitted with two Nordstrand Big Single 6 Pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These single-coil pickups respond well to slap playing, providing the bell-like clarity that funk and R&B players love. Rock players will appreciate the bridge pickup's ability to reach snarling tones when overdriven, making it easy for a bassist to cut through the mix when they need to.

An active 3-band EQ gives you independent bass, middle, and treble controls, while the mid-frequency select switch instantly changes the frequency used as the center point for the mid knob from 250 to 600 Hz.

Features:

- Maple top with mahogany wings
- BTB6 7-piece maple/bubinga/walnut neck in 35" scale
- Graphite reinforcement rods to strengthen neck
- Rosewood fretboard
- Medium frets with Premium fret edge treatment
- Nordstrand Big Single single-coil pickups in neck and bridge position
- Independent 3-band EQ
- Mid-frequency switch changes mid center point from 250 to 600Hz
- EQ bypass switch
- Mono-Rail IV bridge

Cut right through the mix and show off your six-string range with the Ibanez BTB1406E.

Product Description

With its mahogany body, select AAA grade figured maple top, and vintage natural flat finish, the BTB1406EVNF is as visually striking as it is rewarding to play. The precision crafted thru-neck construction, rosewood fretboard, and the Mono-Rail IV bridge, all contribute to the BTB's musical liveliness. Slide your hand up and down the fingerboard, and notice the smoothness of the fret edges. That's part of what Ibanez calls the "Premium Treatment". The hand rolled frets, the product of a skilled hand-crimping process that produces noticeably smooth fret edges. Nordstrand(TM) "Big Single" pickups provide a full, loud, and aggressive single-coil tone.

Ibanez, the leader in 6-string basses introduces BTB Premium, their latest addition Ibanez's popular Premium line of guitars and basses designed especially for the working pro. At a glance, the knowledgeable player recognizes the BTB's bold design advantages. To start, the 35" scale means slightly increased tension particularly to the lower strings, negating any sense of string "floppiness." The super-deep cutaway provides a musical invitation in the form of access to an entire higher octave. Turn the bass over and prepare to be amazed! The neck is a seven-piece Maple/Bubinga/Walnut masterpiece.

Features:

- Deluxe gig bag is included.
- BTB6 7pc Maple/Bubinga/Walnut neck-thru with Graphite reinforcement rods
- 35" scale
- Figured maple top/Mahogany wing body
- Medium frets with Premium fret edge treatment
- Rosewood fretboard with Abalone inlays
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing instrument!"
Overall: I have an older BTB, and Ibanez really upped the game with this latest lineup. The versatility of the sound and the playability of the instrument allows me to effortlessly move from one sound to another. Rock, funk, latin, jazz.... I'm currently recording with a few different drummers from bands such as Journey, The Tubes, Peter Gabriel, Todd Rundgren...and they both love the sound of the bass.
Style of Music: Rock, country, funk, jazz, latin... I'm all over the place!
