my Ibanez BTB 450 QM, it's a discontinued model but I got it at a good price and I love it!
Very nice. I have a BTB1000e (natural) and love it. It pairs REALLY well with the VT bass pedal. I won't play mine without it.
Congrats, it sure looks good!
Cool! Congrats on the new axe, she's a beauty.
Reminds me of mine...
Beautiful! Enjoy, and play the heck out of it!
Your bass is a beauty too!!!!
Congrats. Beautiful finish. If it sounds half as good as it looks, I can see why you're excited. Looks like a keeper.
Nice, I like the color.
Nice buy. I have a BTB456QM which is the 6 string version. Mine has a black stain on it and altough it looks good I gotta say yours looks better.
Now those are some neat tops.
Did these come stock w/ the Barts? Mine is the blue quilt version and has Ibby p'ups...
The BTB QM 400 had Ibanez pickups while the BTB QM 450 had Barts I believe .
Thanks Jammin. I didn't realize there were 2 versions of the QM series. Now I'm curious how much difference the Barts make over the stock Ibanez p'ups. Honestly, I think my BTB sounds fantastic with the stockers, but the Barts are intriguing. Are the preamps the same between the 400 and 450 QM basses?
Bassmonkey, that is a beauty of a bass!
Badmonkey, that's a beauty. I had the opportunity to try one out at Sam Ash and they play very nicely. Take care of it and enjoy it.
Bassmonkey and Phadreus those are both gorgeous looking basses , very cool .
Bassdaddy like most things in the world of art , (and music is definately an artform) peoples opinions are subjective ( everyone has thier personal preferances ) . I have read online people who love the Ibanez pickups over the Barts and did not like the Barts , and people who love the Barts over the Ibanez's and did not like the Ibanez's. I've read that the Barts are darker sounding and the Ibanez's are brighter. It's really just a matter of what sound you prefer, its a personal choice .
I do not know about the pre-amps , so I can not comment on them .
