Here's what Ibanez say about the BTB846SC-DTL Electric bass In Deep Twilight Low Gloss
Ibanez is pleased to introduce the BTB846SC to the Ibanez Bass Workshop line, featuring a redesigned body to follow Ibanez’s 2017 upgrades. The BTB series has greatly changed with its upgraded factors and high-end bass features.
The new sleek body has a curved bevel that helps create a more elegant feel with beautiful figuring, swirls and darker pockets of Poplar Burl top. The Mahogany body features a warm tone with rich resonance. The stainless frets contribute to high durability and bright tone, and the zero fret provides accurate intonation and minimal string height. The zero fret also helps open string sounds to be the same as other frets. The bridges and EQ are also upgraded. The Mono-Rail V allows a wide intonation adjustment range, and each isolated bridge works for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ and 3-way midfrequency switch allow for precise tonal control (250 Hz, 450 Hz, and 700 Hz). The Bartolini® BH2 dual-coil pickups with rich low frequency provide a balanced, warm response with a tight bottom end and full midrange. D’Addario® NYXL strings are installed, featuring a dynamic range and harmonic response.
The extended upper horn creates constant contact with the Maple/Rosewood neck from the 12th to the 24th fret, providing maximum stability and increased sustain. The beautifully curved back side of the body and lower deep cutaway promises comfortable playability, even at the upper frets. The BTB’s 35-inch through-neck is constructed with 5pc of Maple and Rosewood, providing massive sustain and excellent stability. Moreover, the added neck end adjustment allows you to adjust the neck easily without loosening the strings. The extended scale length helps create a clear sound and sufficient string tension for the lower strings while adding ringing sustain to the upper strings. Other features include the secure, high-tech Neutrik® locking output jack.
