This guitar features a stunning Poplar Burl top with an Okoume core and Ash wings, delivering bright, solid tones with rich sustain. It includes durable medium stainless steel frets and T1 humbucker pickups, which offer tight bass, punchy mid-range, clear high-end, and ergonomic comfort. The neck-through construction ensures massive sustain and smooth high fretboard access, while the 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck with graphite reinforcement rods provides tonal clarity, superior attack, and excellent stability.



On the BTB Line:

Without a doubt, your instrument should reflect the dedication you place in your musicianship and creative endeavors. At a certain point, the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, neck-thru construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously combined into a stunning pro-level instrument. But what about the upfront investment of such an instrument? That's where Ibanez comes in. Our ability to build small-shop quality, into inspiring yet affordable instruments, is showcased in droves with BTB series basses.

On the Bass Workshop Models:

For more than 40 years, Ibanez has pioneered new frontiers in bass development, pushing the boundaries of conventional designs to bass players of all styles, affording new avenues of expression and creativity. This spirit of exploration has led to the creation of some of the most successful and popular production basses of all time. Following this same drive to bring new and relevant ideas to the musical forefront is what serves as the basis for this ongoing project, dubbed the Ibanez Bass Workshop. The impetus behind each one of these unique instruments comes from a desire by the Ibanez bass development team to satisfy the particular needs of many players. These inventions may not be for everyone, but for those who yearn to explore new sonic vistas through the medium of bass: The Ibanez Bass Workshop project may give you just what you're looking for.
