Ibanez Iron Label BTB652EX – Black Flat

5-string Electric Bass with Okoume Body, 5-piece Maple/Walnut Neck, Ebonol Fingerboard, and 2 Dual-coil Pickups – Black Flat

Neck-through Bass Optimized for Heavier Genres

Ibanez’s Iron Label BTB625EX is the latest offering from Iron Label, the company’s line of ultimate metal machines. This 5-string neck-through bass offers up thunderous tones and liquid playability. Bassists particularly appreciate the increased sustain afforded by the neck-through design. It has okoume body wings and is loaded with Bartolini BH2 dual-coil pickups for a huge sound and superb sustain. You can shape your tone with the onboard 3-band EQ and 3-way mid-frequency switch. The sheer playability of the 5-piece maple/walnut neck is sure to impress just as much as the ultra-low action provided by the zero fret design. If you’re looking for a bass that can keep up with the heaviest guitar riffs, strike up the Ibanez Iron Label BTB625EX.

Bartolini BH2 pickups for a huge sound

Bartolini BH2 pickups maintain a superb balance between the Iron Label BTB625EX’s clarity and depth. They provide complexity and warmth in the mids and low-end depth that won’t wash out. Long-blade pole pieces allow these dual-coil pickups to offer hum-free single-coil-style character and consistency. When you want to sculpt your BTB625EX’s tone, just reach for the 3-band EQ. This active equalizer delivers wide frequency-range adjustments on each band. There’s also a 3-way midrange switch that lets you define your instrument’s presence. Whether you want round R&B throb or responsive thumb-technique punch, the BTB625EX delivers.

Durable stainless steel frets

The BTB625EX is built to go the distance, which is why Ibanez chose to install stainless steel frets. Stainless steel frets are an ultra-durable alternative to standard nickel silver frets that wear out after a few years. Not only will the BTB625EX’s frets last longer than normal, but they also have what it takes to handle tour after tour and come out unscathed. The BTB625EX’s ultra-durable frets are a must-have — especially if you use stainless steel string sets.

Iron Label: the hardest-hitting basses

Ibanez developed the Iron Label series with one goal in mind — create the ultimate metal machines. The Iron Label design team took well-loved designs and stripped them down, and rebuilt them from the ground up, making player-focused adjustments and refining the sound along the way. We can attest that Ibanez’s careful modifications and thoughtful tweaks have resulted in high-performance axes for hard-hitting music. If you’re looking for a bass guitar for metal, the Ibanez Iron Label series is the place to start.
