Bass of the Week: Ibanez BTB776PB
This week we look at the Ibanez BTB776PB, a six-string bass featuring a hot poplar burl top. Ibanez created the BTB line to create a boutique feel by implementing the same concepts without the boutique price. The line, including the BTB776PB, features a 35? scale, select body materials, neck-thru construction, and deep cutaways.
The BTB is built around a 5-piece maple and bubinga neck with a mohagany body and a rosewood fretboard. Its top wood is accented with a matching poplar burl topped headstock and Cosmo Black hardware. The pickups are a pair of Bartolini MK-2 humbuckers designed by Bill Bartolini for Ibanez and are matched with a Bartolini 3-band EQ.
