Without a doubt, your instrument should equal the quality of your effort. At some point the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, neck-thru construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously crafted instrument. The ability of Ibanez to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

The Ibanez BTB686SC's 5-piece Maple/Bubinga thru-neck design, along with an extreme cutaway on the lower horn, make every note on the 35" scale fretboard a player's playground. The extended Upper Horn creates constant contact with the neck from the 12th to the 24th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain. The extra-long 35-inch neck scale offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. It also provides superior articulation, making it perfect for both 5 and 6-strings while neck-thru construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability. The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.

The Ibanez BTB686SC is equipped with the Mono-Rail II bridge system. The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, allowing each string to vibrate optimally without being affected by the others. The Terra Firma's string spacing is 17mm, offering more freedom on the fretboard and easy access for finger picking and slapping.

The Ibanez BTB686SC features Bartolini pickups with a 3-band EQ with mid frequency switch fine-tuned specifically for the BTB. The active 3-Band EQ features fully independent bass, treble, and mid Controls with a wide boost/cut range. The preamp system is equipped with a mid-frequency select switch, enabling you to instantly select 250Hz and 600Hz - the heart of the mid zone - for a more dynamic and ideal tone.
