Boutique Bass Style for Less!

With a nod to the boutique bass world, Ibanez developed the BTB686SC bass as a fun and playable instrument that both rivals the finest high-end basses on the market and offers an affordable entry into the world of serious 6-string bass. In every way, the BTB686SC is very much like the rest of the BTB series models you'll find at Sweetwater. It gives you the great sound of a pair of Bartolini pickups, a string-isolating Mono-Rail II bridge, and a wonderfully flexible 3-band EQ. Where it goes a bit off book is with its solid upper bout and rosewood top, both of which make this an even more outstanding instrument. Add to that an extended 35" scale, and you've got one of the most playable 6-string basses around.

The perfect combination of tone woods for an extended-range bass

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 BTB686SC 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 BTB686SC, Ibanez utilized neck-through construction which gives you better vibrational and tonal transfer through out the entire instrument. A light ash body with rosewood top and rosewood fretboard complete the picture making the Ibanez BTB686SC a bass player's dream.

Top-shelf appointments enhance your tone and your playing experience

Ever take that one step too far and have your cable pop out on you live? No duck tape or other method of securing your cable quite holds a candle to a locking Neutrik connector, which clamps down and keeps your cable firmly in place. The unique Mono-Rail II bridge on the BTB686SC is also a real bonus, giving you the best string separation possible. Essentially, each string has its own separate bridge, which all but eliminates the transfer of vibrations from setting strings in motion, largely removing the need for a string damper.

Dial in a great low end

Ibanez BTB686SC basses come out of the factory with Bartolini pickups and preamps installed. The 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 BTB686SC is ready for the gig.

Ibanez BTB686SC 6-string Solidbody Electric Bass Features:
  • An amazing boutique-style 6-string bass any serious player can afford
  • Bartolini BH1-6 pickups and preamp deliver a massive range of versatile tone
  • Neck-through construction provides epic sustain and stability
  • Deep lower cutaway provides limitless access to the upper frets
  • Neutrik locking output jack keeps you from losing your cord
  • Mono-Rail II bridge delivers amazing string separation for minimal harmonic transfer between strings
