5-string Electric Bass with Curly Maple/Walnut Top and Back, African Mahogany Wings, Panga Panga Fingerboard, 2 Humbucking Pickups, and 3-band Active EQ – Caribbean Islet Low Gloss
Stunning Curly Maple/Walnut BTB with an Aguilar Voice
We have a broad selection of the very finest instruments, and the Ibanez Premium BTB1935 5-string bass runs with the best of them. Don’t let its gentle price tag fool you: this instrument’s boutique heritage strikes you immediately with its stunning curly maple/walnut top and sleek panga panga/purpleheart neck-through design. The BTB1935 bass delivers monster tone backed by equally impressive sustain and stability. The 7-piece neck is graphite reinforced, with gold tuners on one end and a gold Mono-rail bridge at the other. A pair of top-drawer Aguilar DCB dual-ceramic-magnet pickups and custom Ibanez electronics with 3-band EQ complete the setup.
World-class Aguilar DCB pickups plus masterful tone shaping
There are many great reasons world-class bass players swear by Aguilar DCB bass pickups, which make them an obvious choice for Ibanez’s BTB Premium models. These dual-ceramic-magnet pickups give your BTB1935 an extended range of tonal versatility, offering a fine balance of responsive attack, prodigious sustain, and complex harmonics. And you’ll be impressed by the extended tone-shaping options the 3-band EQ delivers. There’s also a 3-mode midrange switch, which allows you to sculpt your overtones to fit any musical genre or playing style.
Neck-through design ensures exceptional sustain
Generations of innovators and top-tier manufacturers have relied on neck-through designs for superior stability and sustain. Pick up an Ibanez BTB1935, and you’ll experience everything neck-through construction offers. You can feel the BTB1935 vibrate clear through its ultra-stable 7-piece panga panga/purpleheart neck, right down to the strap peg. The extended sustain doesn’t just add body to your tone, but it also provides a greater tonal balance that you’ll hear in every note you play.
Mono-rail bridge enhances definition and sustain
Ibanez specified their excellent MR5S (Mono-rail) bridge for the BTB1935. Unlike single-body bridges, each Mono-rail V saddle is completely separate from the others. This does two things for you. First, since they aren’t connected, the saddles create minimal sympathetic vibration, preventing unused strings from ringing. Second, each saddle is double-anchored, allowing energy to transfer efficiently between the string and the body. As a result, bassists here are raving about the BTB1935’s astonishing clarity and sustain.
Ibanez: a brief history
Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the “Ibanez Salvador” name, which was later shortened to Ibanez. Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative instruments and had begun manufacturing the innovative original guitar and bass designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals, most notably the Tube Screamer.
