Ibanez Bass Workshop BTB865SC 5-string Bass Guitar - Weathered Black Low Gloss

5pc Maple/Walnut neck with Graphite reinforcement rods

The 5pc Maple/Walnut neck provides tonal clarity and superior attack. The Graphite reinforcement rods provides massive sustain and excellent stability.

Rosewood fretboard

Rosewood fretboard provides a well-balanced solid tone with a focused mid range.

Ash top / Ash / Okoume wing body

The Ash top imbues this bass with an exotic appearance and the Ash/Okoume body provides superior attack, bright and solid sound with rich sustain.

Bartolini BH2 pickups

The Bartolini BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.

Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ

The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ is our latest refinement on the concept of simple, straightforward, no-nonsense EQ control. The Boost and Cut for the Mid Control are each centered on slightly different frequencies, an innovation that delivers a preset range of the most favorable bass tones.

MR5 bridge

The Mono-Rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.

3-way Mid frequency switch

The 3-way Mid frequency switch allow players to change the mid-tone between 250, 450, and 700 Hz.

A detachable Finger ramp is included for comfortable finger picking.

Neck-through construction

The neck-through construction contributes to massive sustain and smooth access to high fretboard positions.
