Add a high-end bass to your collection for little cash with the Ibanez BTB776 bass.
Ibanez BTB776 Electric Bass at a Glance:
Good wood makes good sounds
Necks aren't just part of a bass, they are the heart of the bass. The neck feel and playability can make or break an otherwise great instrument. The Ibanez BTB776 incorporates a 5-piece maple/bubinga neck that offers you killer stability, playability, and tone. Ibanez basses have long been known for their excellent necks. Not satisfied to just attach the neck to the BTB776, Ibanez utilized neck-through construction which gives you better vibrational and tonal transfer through out the entire instrument. A mahogany body with poplar burl top and rosewood fretboard complete the picture making the Ibanez BTB776 a bass player's dream.
Tone enhancing appointments
A slightly longer 35" scale gives the BTB776 superior articulation and helps provide more tension and a better feel on the 6th string. Formerly found on boutique basses only, this extended scale length will provide you with a better playing experience on lower strings. The unique Mono-Rail II bridge is used on the BTB776, giving you the best string separation possible. Each string has its own separate mini-bridge, this keeps strings from interfering with each others vibrations as with traditional bridges.
Dial in great a great low end
Ibanez BTB776 basses come out of the factory with Bartolini pickups and preamps installed. The passive humbucking Bartolini BH1 pickups use ceramic magnets to give you a warm tone with superior dynamics. A 3-band EQ lets you dial in the perfect sound you have been looking for. It doesn't matter what style of music you play, the Ibanez BTB776 is ready for the gig.

It's A Beautiful Bass
by Adam from OklahomaI'm self taught, and still in the intermediate stages of learning to play bass, but I am a natural on drums, on which I took 6 years of lessons when I started on drums as a kid. Over the past 27 years... read more [+] I have been around music, and musicians, garage bands, bar bands, and arena bands. I know what looks good, and I know what sounds good. This bass does both very very well. I want to get a better amp to play it through, but my old Peavey Combo 115 isn't being reviewed here. I was a bit bewildered at first by the neck's width. I have a Samick 5 string that has a neck which now feels so tiny, like a broom handle compared to this Ibanez. Don't be afraid of it. After I started to play it, it's width quickly became irrelevant and my playing quickly opened up into grooves and melodies I had never found before. The neck is heavy, plenty thick, but not so thick that it is hard to maneuver my fingers on. Getting to the low B string with my relatively short fingers isn't hard even at the first fret position. Next there are no dead notes on this neck from the b string's 1st fret low C to the c string's 24th fret high C and all notes in between. I don't think it would be physically possible to get all the fret buzz out of this bass while maintaining play ability. It isn't overly loaded with fret buzz out of the box but there is a little, though not enough that I want to change the action. The action is fairly low and easy to play, but some softer strings could make it even easier which is something I plan to change. I want a softer string just a little softer. The stock strings sound okay, and when brand new almost felt like flat wounds, smooth, but I'm not well experience on strings so I want to try a lot of different one's. I wasn't blown away with the tone of the bass at first until I spent some hours playing around with it. One reason I want a better amp, or tonally uninhibited amp I guess is that this bass can likely produce any electric bass tone that I could want. My amp doesn't do upper midrange and highs so well as it has no horn, but on the neck pickup with all the amp EQ flat and the bass EQ flat I get smooth clean deep lows that you can feel. That classic tone ala P Bass I guess. I put the pickup selector in thecenter position and bass level is slightly reduced and...well, you know how moving the pickup selector changes the sound, neck big deep tone, bridge sharp cutting tone. This is no different. This bass isn't a one trick pony on tone. It is also a sustain monster. With a good full range bass amp you can dial in smooth deep tone or cutting growl, and all tones between and the active EQ on this thing is very powerful and capable of drastically altering the perceived tone by itself without even changing the pickup selector,(2-9volt batteries required) but you can use the pickup selector too, win win. I can't wait to get a really good amp for mine and explore the full tonal possibilities of this bass. I play for my own enjoyment at this point, so you don't have to take my word for it, but if you want to spend $2,500-$3,000 on boutique 6 string bass, go ahead. You will need to spend at least that to rival this bass which I paid $1,000 for. I recommend the Ibanez hardshell case that fits the BTB basses also. Very well done. close [-]
