The mission of the Ibanez Bass Workshop is to pioneer new frontiers in bass development by pushing the boundaries of conventional designs. The impetus behind each one of these unique instruments comes from the desire of the Ibanez bass development group to satisfy the specific needs of a very particular player and to hopefully inspire new vistas of creativity.
Designed for players looking to explore the upper region of the fretboard, the BTB845V is a 5-string bass tuned from E to C. Excellent for playing chords and soloing up by a 33” scale neck. This 5-piece Maple/Walnut “Medium Scale” neck helps to create the proper tension and tonal quality for the C string without compromising the deep tone of the E string. It also facilitates faster playing and easier chording.
Another innovative feature of the BTB33 is the inclusion of a height adjustable Poplar burl Finger Ramp. The ramp prevents players from digging in too hard when plucking finger-style and encourages a lighter playing technique, which helps promote a broader dynamic range and better tone. It also acts as a thumb rest that provides access to a wider plucking area, allowing players to explore more tonal options by varying the distance of their hand from the bridge.
The BTB33 includes a Mahogany with an Poplar/Ash top, the neck sports a Jatoba fingerboard with Abalone inlays, and the Mono-Rail VS bridge provides optimum adjustment for superior intonation. Electronics feature the excellent tone of Bartolini BH2 pickups, through an Ibanez 3-band EQ with a mid-frequency selector switch for advanced tone control.
The unique Ibanez BTB845V 5-String Electric Bass features a 33” scale neck and E to C tuning - perfect for your soloing and chords. Order today.
