Not Your Typical 5-string Bass

The Ibanez BTB845V five-string electric bass boasts a fast-playing 33″ scale length and is tuned E-A-D-G-C, perfect for higher-pitched soloing and chord work. You’ll have easy access to octaves from the D string, and the generous cutaway gives you comfortable access to the highest frets. No matter what style of music you play, you’ll find that the Ibanez BTB845V offers serious performance both live and in the studio.

An exceptionally musical bass

With the BTB845V, Ibanez is offering scores of bass players a five-string electric bass guitar with extended range in the higher register. It gives you more options for how you begin and end your grooves and also allows for more chord shapes play it a bit and you’ll find all sorts of new sonic options for accents and embellishments. Factor in the fast-playing 33″ scale length and you’ve got a bass that’s perfect for melodic playing and soloing while remaining comfortable across the entire fingerboard.

Neck-through construction gives you exceptional sustain

The neck-through five-piece maple/walnut neck on the BTB845V is a more solid connection than you get with a bolt-on neck design. That means better vibration transfer from the neck to the body, which means you get a fast attack and long-lasting sustain. It also allows Ibanez to mount the bass’ Mono-Rail VS bridge and dual Bartolini pickups directly to the length of the neck. For sustain and stability, it’s hard to beat Ibanez’s neck-through design. Turn your bass amplifier up, and you’ll see exactly what we mean.

Mono-Rail VS bridge enhances definition and sustain

At Ibanez, there’s genius in the details. Like the BTB845V’s innovative Mono-Rail VS bridge with locking saddles. This design provides a separate bridge for each string, each independently attached to the BTB845V’s body. This allows each string to fully vibrate without any interference with the other strings, and with exceptional sustain. It also means that no matter how fast you play across the strings, each note will ring clear and true.
