  1. That's exactly right and that's why it's so difficult to understand. I'm going to remove both the E and B string to measure the distance between the two bridge saddles as they should be 19mm. The older string that came fitted with the bass was a slightly narrower B so may not have been as noticeable. It's a real freak out though... Your annotated diagram was really helpful and i sent it to my luthier.
  2. The E string saddle seems parallel to the A string. I can see what you mean about the screw at the front of the (B) saddle can be loose or may have even been drilled incorrectly?
  3. The "gap" you've highlighted in yellow is exactly what i noticed as not being flush but i thought that was deliberate as i think the the G string might look like it does the same? Your help is v much appreciated.
  4. Thanks. That's a great answer. The bass is brand new and everything is very tight but i will have a look at screws etc. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. When i looked at official ibanez pictures, it does seem as though the B string bridge is not straight and is therefore deliberate. What do you think? Mike
  5. Can anybody help!? Recently bought a new ibanez btb 1825. Just changed the strings to Elixir nanoweb long scale with extra long B string as it is a 35" scale bass and the regular long scale B is too short. Since changing strings there is now a noticeable difference between the B and the E string in terms of string spacing. It is narrower than the 19mm it should be. I know that as these two are the thickest strings, the distance between their edges will be smaller but their middle to middle distance should still be 19mm. It wasn't a problem with the strings that were supplied with the bass. Also the btb has five individual bridges and the B string bridge seems slightly squint- this may be deliberate as im sure these basses and computer manufactured. I'll try and attach two photos- one of the B bridge and one of the B and E distance. Any help gratefully received!
  6. Hi. Where is the bass located, what's the scale length and string spacing? Thanks
  7. Great bass! What's the string spacing at the bridge and the width at the nut, please?
  8. Great looking bass. Can you please add a few photos with the bass out of the case and in particular shots of the body shape? Cheers.
  9. I told you they were great! Congratulations. once again I have Smith envy!
  10. Enough already! Someone please sell me a BB1025!
  11. The serial number should be inside the control panel on the back of the bass. If you remove the cover on the back of the bass, you should see it. Can you let me know please? Thanks
  12. Thanks. Is the the N89 bit you're referring to?
  13. I think you canncheck the serial number and it should tell you.
