Ibanez BTB550 MP Reviews?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by rodoherty1, Aug 10, 2005.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I've been burying myself in piano since the beginning of the year and I'm considering picking up the bass again. I have a Ibanez BTB405QM which I do like, but I'm not convinced about the B-String. I think I'd be happier to return to a 4-string.

    Does anyone have any experience with the BTB550 MP? As far as I can tell, it's similar to the 400QM but the 550 has a Maple Top/Back and a Mahogony body instead of the 400's Basswood body.

    I'd be interested in hearing any opinions.
    It may be worth keeping in mind that I live in the EU (Ireland).

    Hope all is well ... !!

  2. No thoughts on the Ibanez BTB550 MP?

    I'd mainly be interested in the difference the Maple/Mahogony would make over the BTB405's Basswood body.
