I'm an excited man. I think I'm gonna be getting my first non-crappy bass soon. So I went down to my local L&M today to test out some basses. I found an Ibanez bass, a six string BTB something. I found that six strings made it quite difficult to slap, so I wondered if they had it in a fiver (tuned EADGC) and they do make one, but the store had none in stock. I figured I'd check the price of the six anyway, and was shocked that it was only $730 (Canadian too!). That means the five would be even cheaper! I didn't get to play it for very long, but it sounded really nice. Cool features like a locking input, cool looking hardware, a weird (but cool) bridge, etc. Cool transparent colour and all. But I figure at that price, there's gotta be a catch. Something has to be wrong with it, it's one of the 'to-good-to-be-true' situations. One thing I didn't like was that the battery door needed to be unscrewed, which seems like it would be a hassle (unlike the awesome StingRay battery doors). So is there a catch, or is this just an awesome bass at a low price? If anyone owns or has owned this bass, I'd love a full review. I just hope the battery door is the only problem! Thanks for any help you can give me. Graeme EDIT: Also, how does the BTB Prestige line differ from the original series? And, what kind of price increase is going to be involved?
