Here is a used Ibanez BTB400QMTR 4-String 35” scale bass guitar. This bass comes stock with the original pickups and 18V Active Preamp, however I’ve removed the original Neutrik locking jack for a standard one but this can easily be modded back in. This preamp is highly versatile and it can generate a LOT of great tones. If it's subtlety you're going for, the studio-quiet Vari-Mid 3B EQ allows you to modify and color your tones as much or as little as you want. And it is due to the 18volt circuitry that the preamp can provide much greater headroom than what’s found on standard active EQs. This was set up recently by TWSpedals.

This guitar has been used but it still has many years of awesome playability in it. The BTB series comes with a fuller body and chunkier (and slightly wider) neck. 'Quilted Maple' Top with a Basswood Body, Transparent Red Finish (Finish has surface wear on the back. There are some dents/nicks and scratches on the bottom sides of the bass; although, none of them are major nor do they impede playing. please see photos), Ibanez 'BTB4' 5-Piece Maple/Walnut Neck with a Rosewood Fingerboard , 1 5/8" nut, 23 1/2 Jumbo Frets. Also, BTB basses feature Monorail II bridges so the strings are independent, and do not interfere with each other as they vibrate. It also has Ibanez 'DFR-N4' Dynamic Full Range Neck Pickup, Ibanez 'DFR-B4' Dynamic Full Range Bridge Pickup, Ibanez 'VM-3B' Vari-Mid Active EQ System (which utilizes two 9-volt batteries), 35" scale length, and original Ibanez Sealed Gear Tuning Machines. The bass was made in Korea.
