Ibanez BTB

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Bassline1414, Jan 30, 2002.


  1. Hello,
    I recently purchased an Ibanez BTB from my coffee drinking and suicidal friend (inside joke! :)), Angus. While I like the pre amp very much (a lot of different tones), are there any pickups that would fit into my BTB and would enchance the sound? Thanks!

    Bartolini and EMG both make common pickups to fit it, if I remember correctly when I was looking. I think you have to use the 6 string EMGs because the 5s were just short (remember though, it doesn't matter if its a 6 pup on a 5, because they're bar magnets). Bartolini makes so many pickups I'm sure they have something.

    Seymour Duncan, Aero, Bill Lawrence, etc etc, all CAN make, if they don't already, pickups for you to fit in there.

    What kind of sound do you want, and what can you spend...hick? :D
