Ibanez BTB805MS 5-string Bass Guitar - Transparent Gray Flat

Product Description:

A bass shouldn’t just be a clunky old axe that you sling over your shoulder before hitting the stage or the studio. Instead, your bass of choice should be an inspiring instrument, like the Ibanez BTB805MS. It comes with an poplar burl/ash top that immediately grabs the eyes of onlookers. This 5-string, neck-through bass offers up exceptionally smooth playability, courtesy of its multi-scale frets and ergonomic design. The BTB805MS has two T1 humbucking pickups that serve up velvety tone with well-behaved lows and mids that punch like Mike Tyson. You can sculpt your tone to perfection with the 3-band EQ and a 3-way mid frequency switch. There’s also an EQ bypass switch with a passive tone control — a feature that bassists at Sweetwater find especially useful. The bottom line? The Ibanez BTB805MS offers boutique features and design elements at a fraction of the price!

Customize your sound with versatile electronics

Tonal versatility is a must-have for today’s bass player. That’s why Ibanez equipped the BTB805MS with T1 humbucking pickups and an onboard 3-band EQ. T1 pickups utilize an independent dual-coil design for a highly-versatile tone that can fit into any playing situation imaginable. Need a single-coil sound for a one-off gig? Easy! Just lower one of the coils, and you’re ready to go! Once you’re off-stage, raise the coil back up to get the smooth, punchy humbucker sound. You can sculpt your tone with the 3-band EQ. This active equalizer delivers broad frequency-range adjustments on each band. There’s also a 3-way midrange switch that lets you define your instrument’s presence. The Ibanez BTB805MS's versatile electronics can produce any sound you need.

Ultra-stable neck and multi-scale frets

Adding more strings to a neck adds to your playing options, makes the neck contend with more tension. The BTB805MS solves that issue with its 5-piece maple/walnut neck. The multi-piece, graphite-reinforced, neck-through design improves the neck’s stability and enhances sustain. Meanwhile, the multi-scale stainless steel frets offer better intonation and more consistent tension from string to string. If you’re looking for a bass with a stable neck, exceptional playability, spot-on intonation, look no further than the Ibanez BTB805MS.

It’s all in the details

Ibanez’s obsessive attention to detail has made the company a global guitar and bass powerhouse. That same detail-oriented construction is one of the many things that helped the BTB805MS make such a splash at Sweetwater. It comes with stainless steel frets that will last through years of hard touring. The zero fret lets the bass achieve exceptionally low action for silky-smooth playability. What’s more, the MR5S bridge enables you to customize the string spacing to fit your evolving needs as a player. There’s also a locking output jack, so you won’t suffer any accidental disconnections onstage. And like all Ibanez basses, the BTB805MS includes high-quality tuning machines for rock-solid tuning stability.
