The long-awaited fretless version with top-shelf materials and commanding tone.
The 6-string Ibanez BTB676F Fretless Electric Bass unleashes unbelievable sound capabilities, thanks to quality woods, superior construction, and cutting-edge electronics. A solid light ash body with a walnut top offers cool looks backed up by rugged construction. The rugged 5-piece maple and bubinga thru-neck creates stronger, more dedicated tone and sustain. Exaggerated cutaways and curves make upper-fret access effortless.
The 35" neck scale provides superior articulation ideal for low tunings, and offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. The exclusively designed New Bartolini BH1 pickups are balanced for tone and plenty of sizzle. Balancing clarity with warmth is the hallmark of the new Bartolini pickup. Coils with lower resonant frequency provide tighter bottom end and full midrange. Also, the dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation. A long blade polepiece widens the magnetic field, therefore, whether five-string or six, sound level is balanced by the ultra-precise vibration reaction of the longer coils.
The active 3-band EQ, featuring fully independent bass, treble and mid controls with a wide boost/cut range, with Mid frequency switch (250Hz or 600Hz : the heart of the mid zone) provides more tonal versatilities. The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without being affected by the other strings. BTB's string spacing is 19mm for 5-strings, and 17mm for 6-strings, offering more freedom on the fretboard, and comfortable access for finger picking and slapping.
Die-cast tuners, cosmo black hardware, and a flat finish round out the Ibanez BTB676F Fretless 6-string bass guitar's features to make it truly is work of the luthier's art.
