    Got this a trade but in doing so I found that I no longer have a 5 string... So if someone has one of comparable value I'm all ears! I listen to trade offers but don't be upset if I respond with a polite no Thank you!

    BTB's extra-long 35-inch neck scale offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. It also provides superior articulation, making it perfect for both 5 and 6-strings.

    Neck-through Construction
    Neck-through construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.

    Deep Cutaway
    The BTB's much deeper cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.

    Mono-Rail Bridge
    The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others. BTB's string spacing is 19mm for 5-strings, and 17mm for 6-strings, offering more freedom on the fretboard, and comfortable access for finger picking and slapping.

    Nordstrand™ Pickups
    Nordstrand™ "Big Single" pickups provide the clarity of single coil pickups, while the large body gives players a full and aggressive tone.

    3-band EQ w/Mid Frequency Switch
    3-band EQ with mid frequency switch fine-tuned specifically for the BTB. The active 3-Band EQ features fully independent bass, treble, and mid Controls with a wide boost/cut range.
    The preamp system is equipped with a mid-frequency select switch, enabling you to instantly select 250Hz and 600Hz - the heart of the mid zone - for a more dynamic and ideal tone.

    Secure high-tech Neutrik® locking output jack
    Neutrik® locking jack provides stable and secure connections, preventing accidental disconnect or shock and vibration.

    Gotoh machineheads and BLACK TUSQ Nut.
    Just stock images for now once I get home I'll take actual shots of the bass. But outside of a few little very minor dings and dents the bass is incredibly clean. Will ship in a Brand new Road Runner HSC valued at $150.00. So for you 6 stringers out there this bass will not disappoint. Runs on 9 volt battery.
    Thanks TALKBASS,

    Without a doubt, your instrument should equal the quality of your effort. At some point the word "boutique" comes to mind: Select-grade materials, neck-thru construction, and top quality components, all in a meticulously crafted instrument. But what about the price? That's where Ibanez comes in. Our ability to build small-shop quality into inspiring yet affordable instruments is showcased by BTB series basses.

    The Ibanez BTB1606 Premium 6 string bass is a magnificent bass. If you are looking for a top quality bass this it.

    People sleep on the Premium BTB basses but they will play and sound as good as anything I've found under the $2000 mark. Someone will love this bass.
