A versatile bass for studio and stage with innovative tone-shaping electronics.

The Ibanez BTB705LM bass brings boutique quality into an accessible package. Its sleek body, flamed maple top and smooth 5-piece maple/walnut neck provide gorgeous looks and focused tone. The innovative multi-scale design places the bridge and nut at different lengths for consistent string tension. Combined with the custom-angled T1 humbucker pickups, it enhances playing comfort while providing tight bass, punchy mids and clear highs. The Ibanez 3-band EQ allows flexible tone shaping with passive tone bypass. With the BTB705LM multi-scale bass, you can shape your tone to perfection.

Versatile Tone With a 5-piece Maple and Walnut Neck

The BTB705LM features a 5-piece maple and walnut neck that delivers superior tone across the frequency range. Maple provides crisp attack and walnut lends low-end focus. Graphite reinforcement rods give rock-solid stability for confident playing. The smooth neck-through design allows easy access to higher frets. Tonal clarity and massive sustain let your ideas sing.

Innovative Multi-scale Design for Comfort

This bass utilizes an ingenious multi-scale layout with a longer 35" scale on the B string and shorter 34" scale on the G string. This evens out the string tension across the wide 5-string range for consistent feel and intonation. The custom-angled T1 humbucker pickups are optimally placed to match the fan frets. Their parallel angle to the strings enhances playing comfort. You'll feel right at home resting your thumb on the rounded pickup as you play.

T1 Humbuckers Provide a Flexible Tonal Palette

The T1 humbuckers feature two individually mounted coils for tight bass, focused mids and crisp highs. You can tailor your tone by adjusting the height of each coil. The flexible voicing suits various genres. Rounded edges provide an ergonomic thumb rest. The slightly offset coil placement further enhances playing comfort on the multi-scale neck. Dial in your ideal tone with ease.

Ibanez 3-band EQ With Passive Tone Bypass

The Ibanez Custom 3-band EQ offers intuitive tone control centered on the most favorable frequencies. Cut or boost mids and refine the highs and lows to suit your needs. Engage the EQ bypass to access passive tone shaping, with the treble knob becoming a global tone control. Choose the ideal signal chain for your style. Shape your tone with simplicity.
