The Ibanez BTB705DX TKF

The Ibanez BTB705DX TKF features a 35 inch scale which offers in standard tuning a higher string tension perfect for slap and better articulation than a standard 34 inch scale. The low E string has more bottom end response due to its longer length. The BTB bass is perfect for drop tuning

The concepts behind boutique basses are often the justification for making them extremely expensive. With the advent of the BTB however, Ibanez decided that these same concepts of well-selected body materials, 35” neck scale, and deep cutaways could be applied to an instrument that anyone could afford. All the BTB basses feature neck-thru construction and deeper cutaways for enhanced playability and balance.
