Features: What it does for you:

This 5-String Beauty is a Tone Tweaker's Dream!

Get great sound and even greater tonal control with the Ibanez BTB675M 5-string bass. Built with a walnut-topped ash wing body, your BTB675M projects strong, responsive tone, with a pair of Bartolini BH1 passive pickups to keep your sound warm and thick. The deeper cutaway body means easier access to your five-piece maple/bubinga neck's 24 medium frets, and just below this bad boy's secure Mono-Rail II bridge are a set of three-band EQ controls, a pickup balance control, a master volume knob, and a mid switch. You get a whole host of sonic options and great features when you dig your fingers into this five-stringed tool of tone.

The Alluring Sound of Bartolini Bass Pickups

The Bartolini pickup design is recognized around the world for its broad selection and ability to fit nicely into many different instruments. Your BTB675M is no different. This bass sports a pair of passive BH1s that smoothly project a warm and thick tone without any unwanted low-end mud -- especially important when you play your low B string. Bartolini BH1 pickups offer a flexible, dynamic, and well-defined tone that won't get lost in the mix. If you've never had a chance to fire up these babies, then you're in for a treat -- and will likely become a die-hard Bartolini fan.

Mad Controls for Boundless Sound

The control system of the BTB675M bass is packed with options to help you get the most out of your already dynamic and flexible BH1s. Aside from your standard master volume control, you have a pickup balance knob that lets you slide fluidly among pickup combinations for a continuous spectrum of tone options. You also have three-band EQ knobs -- treble, mid, and bass -- to dial in more sonic character, and to top it off, you have a mid switch to change the node setting of your mid EQ control knob. If you want a bass that not only sounds good but also provides the utmost versatility in sound, then shoulder this baby and see what your BTB675M can really do.

Solid Body and Neck Construction and Dependable Hardware

With a walnut top, the ash wing body offers a lasting resonance. The deeper cut away also provides fast and easy access to the higher frets. The five-piece maple/bubinga neck is built with neck-through-body construction, which provides longer sustain, greater midrange presence, and smoother transfer of sound through to the body. Your maple fretboard is smooth and welcoming to the touch, and with five strings and 24 frets, you'll find a wide range of tonal possibilities. Your BTB675M secures your playing down with a dependable Mono-Rail II bridge that maintains intonation while providing lingering sustain.

- A pair of Bartolini BH1 pickups
- Walnut-topped ash wing body with deeper cutaway
- 24 medium frets on a maple fretboard
- Five-piece maple/bubinga neck

Product Description

Without a doubt, your instrument should equal the quality of your effort. At some point the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, thru-neck construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously crafted instrument. But what about the price? That's where Ibanez comes in. Ibanez's ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

The Ibanez BTB676M features 5 piece Maple/Buginga 35 inch scale thru-neck, which gives you longer sustain and additional tension for the low-B string. Its cutaways are deep enough to reach to the 24th fret with ease. The Bartolini MK-2 pickups and 3-band eq are exclusively designed for BTB basses and give you warmer tone and superior dynamics.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Unbelievable 5 string bass!"
Sound: Sound is fantastic, great tone that punches through the mix, and anchors the band well! I loved the sound of my 4 string BTB, this is better than that! The Bartolini's on this bass rock! Feature: Boost/cut knobs work very well, bass balances very well on shoulder, very easy to play! Swamp ash main body with walnut top laminate (with a darker thin piece between them) is very striking. Maple and walnut through next is solid as a rock! Ease of Use: Very playable instrument, only playing adjustments are for the extra string, and the 1" longer scale. I've had the bass about 3 weeks now, and every time I play it, the playability gets easier! Quality: Fit and finish are almost flawless everwhere. The bass is VERY well made. Seems like this will last me the rest of my playing days! Value: When I showed it to my band mates, the guitar player was blown away by what I paid for this bass, he felt it was easily worth $400 to $500 more than I paid! I have to agree, I looked at and played a lot of basses before choosing this one, most costing in that $400 to $500 more expensive range, and I completely feel I made the right choice! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with Ibanez, don't imagine I'll have to with this bass! The Wow Factor: The minute I opened the case, both my wife and I exclaimed "oh!" Wow... great looking is an understatement!! This bass is so visually striking, I"m constantly getting very positive comments on it. People always seem to want to touch it! Part of why I bought it was the visual appeal to me. I"m not the "buy what everyone else has" type of guy, so I was looking for a great sounding, that was well balanced, and looked different from the "standard" basses! Boy howdy do I have that!! Overall: First off, in regards to zZounds... I ordered this bass (and case) on a Friday morning, by Saturday afternoon, the package was sitting on my porch! A little more than 24 hours shipping? Amazing! Then I opened the package and case and was further blown away...
Style of Music: rockabilly, roots rock, "classic" rock, country, pop, Christian.

"Quite surprised!!!"
Overall: Having played a Gibson Les Paul Bass since 1970, I decided to learn how to play a 5-string. While my first choice was a Fender Jazz for about $1799.00, I wanted to keep under a budget of $1000 and was very surprised to find a fantastic bass in this Ibanez. I love the feel, looks and especially the sound. What a pleasure to hold and look at. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable 5-string.
Style of Music: Gospel, rock, rhythm and blues.
