Ibanez has added to their BTB series of basses with the BTB675M and BTB676M, which sport maple fingerboard and an natural finish. The neck-thru bass is comprised of a 5-piece maple/bubinga neck and a light ash body with a walnut top.
Five and six-string basses respectively, the BTB675M and BTB676M sport all the features of their predecessors, including deep cutaways, Neutrik locking output jacks, and mono-rail bridges. The basses are equipped with a pair of Bartolini MK-2 pickups and a matching Bartolini preamp with a 3-band EQ.
The Ibanez BTB675M and BTB676M are shipping now with street prices of $849 for the 5-string and $899 for the 6-string. For more, check out the Ibanez website.
