SOLD - Ibanez BTB675 NTF
£360
CH5, United Kingdom

Recommended Posts

One big ole 35" thru-neck fiver up for grabs. As you can see from the pics she's no featherweight, but sits perfectly on the strap or sat down. 

I have no clue as to what all the types of woods are that it's made of, there are so many different specs it just gets confusing. 

This one is the older dual truss-rod model, which with such a slim (front to back) neck is properly handy when swapping string types.

This one has the Bartolini NTMB pre-amp - there's another variant of the model with a different system that doesn't seem to get much love, but I've never tried one to see what the difference is.

I had a machine head break a couple of years ago, but couldn't find any smoky/black chrome replacements so I put a set of chrome ones on. That and the flatwounds are the only deviations from standard trim.

Post is included given the virocalypse.

That's a lot of bass for the money.

Someone in a "Key Worker" role is no doubt going to be able to take this off your hands very soon.

Alas I am self-employed and soon to be out of work(like a lot of people I imagine) otherwise I would have been very interested in this.

GLWTS.

The BTBs are sooo much bass for the money. I had a sixer which I sold (slight wrist issues mean 5 is the max nowadays) and I've had to spend a lot more to get something as good. Ibanez really know how to do great playing instruments. GLWTS

I have the same model, and quite frankly there's nothing not to like aboutthose. Wide neck, but narrow profile, 19mm string spacing, dual P Barts..; (those are the Olde rmodels, newer ar J Humbuckers, those are split coils, like P-pickups) Super stable neck (lamination and twin trussrod, you can be safe on this). Three band EQ so you can find your sound. I swapped mine for a Spector Tonepump, and now the bas is dismantled to be resprayed in Chrome with a Drakglass ToneCapsule. 

It's not that heavy as it balance very well, and remind the wood combination is in no way a light one. 

Almost tempted to get a second one...

This is so tempting, even without any gigs on the horizon...
