    So my quest for a new upright continues to cut where it really hurts...but I have to do it. Otherwise, this bass would be a keeper, for sure.

    2005 Ibanez BTB1205E

    This is a fantastic bass! This was a top version of Ibanez's awesome Prestige series of basses. Beautiful woods and excellent construction. There are some typical player-wear type nicks, but nothing at all significant and they don’t affect playability at all.
    This is an extremely comfortable bass to play. The neck is really well-designed and easy to get around on.
    It has a really balanced response and volume across the strings and up the neck, with extremely versatile tonal options, thanks to the awesome EQ and mid switch. It can cop a great p-bass sound with the neck pickup soloed and can do aggressive slap tones as well. With both pickups on, the tone is both thick and detailed.
    Comes with a brand new Gator lightweight case.

    Made in Korea (after Japan, before Indonesia, as the chronology goes).

    These were a limited production run. I had a 6'er when I was working for an Ibanez dealer. The rep said they made about 50 each of the 4, 5, & 6 strings.

    Awesome Bass Free Bump.

    Thanks for that info! I knew you didn't often see these around, but I wasn't aware that they made so few!
    Such a fine bass in great shape and perfect working order bump.
