Ibanez's BTB805MS is a remarkable 5-string multi-scale bass that looks, plays, and sounds like a custom-built boutique instrument. Pairing ergonomic designs with elegant aesthetics and rich tones, this bass is perfect for anyone seeking a premium 5-string bass.
The BTB805MS features an okoume and ash body capped with a poplar burl top, giving it a gorgeous aesthetic and a bright, balanced sound. Its neck-through construction contributes to its exceptional sustain and allows for a smooth transition into the higher frets. Players will love the BTB805MS' 5-piece maple and walnut neck with graphite reinforcement since it's incredibly stable and has a nice, durable feel. And, thanks to its multi-scale design, this bass has exceptional string tension and improved intonation.
The BTB805MS doesn't just play great - it's an absolute tone monster. Equipped with a pair of T1 humbucking pickups, an active 3-band EQ, and a passive bypass switch, this axe has an extensive sonic palette. The magic behind these pickups, though, is in their dual-coil design - the humbuckers are made of two independently mounted coils that can be raised or lowered as desired. Need some spanky single-coil tones? Just lower one of the coils, and the BTB805MS will transform into an entirely new bass.
Complete with stainless steel frets, an MR5S bridge, and a locking output jack, the Ibanez BTB805MS is excellent for players who need a high-performance 5-string bass with incredible versatility.
