    When I select the BTB selection on the Ibanez site, I only see six strings?

    That's weird;
    when I drill down through their site this is the only page I can see. I can follow your link and it shows the five strings but if I select home and click on the only BTB icon I see it takes me to the six strings.
    Well that clears the question I had up, Thanks

    They made 4 stringers as well in the past, but the 5 & 6 string basses were more popular, that's why they stopped building the 4 string BTB's.
