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. No matter what kind of style music you play, offers you a momentous performance for live and in the studio.

Everything about this bass is musical:
Offered to any bass player who choose the BTB845SA is a 5-string electric bass guitar with extend range in the higher register. This bass allows for you to begin and end your grooves in many different ways as well as giving you the ability to have more chord shapes. This is all done within a fast- play 33" scale length of this bass and you will never want to put it down. The more you play this bass you will find new sonic accents and embellishments to spice up any style of music.

Better Neck Design:
The BTB845SA offers you better vibrations transfer from the neck to the body due to the fact that this neck is made of five-piece maple/walnut which means you get a faster attack and long lasting sustain. This is a more solid connection then you would receive with a bolt-on neck design. This also allows Ibanez to mount the bass' Mono-Rail VS bridge and dual Bartolini pickups directly to the neck. You cant beat Ibanez on their bass that are desinged to give you more sustain and stability.

Mono-Rail VS bridge:
This design of Mono Rail VS Bridge provides you with the best of both worlds. Meaning that each string gets their own bridge that is independently attacked the body of the  BTB845SA. Doing this allows each string to vibrate on its own without getting in the way of any other string  giving you long lasting sustain within clearly independent notes.

  • Fast-playing bass that's perfect for melodic playing and soloing
  • Tuned E-A-D-G-C for extended musical range in the higher registers
  • Plays fast thanks to the shorter 33" scale length
  • 5-piece neck-through construction offers rock-solid stability
  • Amazing attack, sustain, and note definition thanks to the Mono-Rail V bridge
  • Incredible tonal versatility from Bartolini pickups and active 3-band EQ
  • Helps you maintain fingering consistency with the finger ramp placed between the pickups

Almost a Perfection!


It's almost a perfect guitar because of my right arm (almost near my elbow) is hitting the sharp edge of the guitar body so it's uncomfortable. I have to either hug the guitar very close to my chest or in standing position with my arm almost stretched straight other wide the opposite side of the top horn just above the bridge is too flat and uncomfortable. Tune is #1 HC and the rest of the strings turned as normal 4 string bass, some what like in-between the 6 string with #1 HC and #6 low B. In-between the pick-ups there is a block of wood or plastic matched with body color and I use it as my thumb rest but when I strum and pick with finger, it makes noise. Just don't hit that thing. Shiny finish could have done better but over all it's well made, sounds good and looks good too. Other things I like about this Bass Guitar is the Bridge can be adjusted as much as +- 1.5 mm to the left or to the right so you can make all 5 string set further apart or set it close together. One last thing I like is that it has extra frat in between the first frat and the nut so that prevents (little) frat buzz. I had the neck set as straight as table top and no frat buzz at all. Although I didn't like few things but it's a good bass guitar and I like playing it!
