    It looks like a decent deal. Personally, if I had the money for this one, I might hold out a little longer, save some more cash and get one of the higher end models with the monorail bridge and barts, but that's just me. If this one appeals to you and will serve your needs, however, I say go for it. :)

    Btb's are great basses for the price and really well made. Although you should be aware that that one is just a entry-level btb200-mkf with a special paint job. So if you want to check if your getting a good deal just check its price against one of those. Where i am you can get one for about €300-€400( i live in Ireland) Personally i would get a higher level BTB if your set on one of them, for a little bit more (depending on whether the price has really gone up because of the paint job) you could get a much better equipped bass. But ultimately its up to you. Play it, if you love it buy it. If you don't, don't

    EDIT: SR have a different type of neck profile and personally i prefer them, plus given the fact that an sr500 has barts on it id go for that one in a heart beat. Just me though,not a btb fan really but i know a lot of people who swear by them

    It looks like a BTB only "less". Like Bogster said, the pickups are different, the bridge is different. BTB stands for "Boutique Bass". The point is to get high-end parts and quality at lower price point. I don't see anything on this bass that makes it any different from any other low/mid-priced bass. BUT, if you play it, and it sounds good to you, and feels good in your hands, go for it! I love both of my BTB's. Don't worry so much about where it's made.

    is the country where it was made was important?

    With recent construction, country of origin is almost unimportant regarding Ibanez. Ibanez is a big company, they can make a great bass anywhere they want to set up a shop.
    I've got about 4 Ibanez basses right now, 2 from Japan (SR885 & RB924), 1 from Korea (SRX700), and a BTB675 (Indonesia). I'm a big fan of upper end Ibanez, no matter where they're made.
    You're not going to go wrong with those, but I always buy used because they're so cheap used (then you can afford 4 instead of 2), they're so well made that used is not really an issue, in my experience. I'd buy a used upper end model over a new mid-range model any day.
