  3. No.. it's not a " decent " bass for the price..

    It the very f##king best bass for the price ! :D :D

    The MTD Kingston is nice, but it's not even half as good as the BTB.

    The BTB has 35" scale, and thus has a nice clean sound, coz the strings are tighter than on 34" basses. Specially the B-string is remarkably tight.

    Balance is perfect, doesn't swivel forward or backward.

    i've got my BTB for about 2 months now, and i'm sure that i will keep it around for ever.

    only tip that i have : change batteries and change set-up when you get the bass. Ibanez uses cheap 'n crappy batteries & strings. If you put in Lithium-ion batteries and slap on some Warwick yellow-labels ( fit perfect on 35" bass, unlike most strings ), and it sounds even better than most basses that are double the price of the BTB. :D

    Any BTB user will tell you the same !

    go for it dude, join the dark side of the force ! :D
     
  4. Crazic, I have to echo what Allodox said. I don't own one, but have played all the BTB models a few times, and they are simply excellent basses. For the money, they can't be beat.
