The Ibanez BTB845 5-string bass is one of those rare beauties that can call to you from across the room and demand to be played. Its poplar burl top looks like something you'd see in a collector's magazine, but the price tag doesn't. Nonetheless, once you get your hands on the BTB845's comfortably contoured multilayer body, feel the power of the neck-through construction, and hear the electronics in action, you'll know how much you lucked out by picking up this special bass. A quick overview reveals a layered ash-over-okoume wing design beneath the poplar burl top, with a solid 5-piece maple and walnut neck running the full length of the instrument. Add a 5-piece Mono-rail V bridge to the mix, and you have sustain for days with ideal string-to-string isolation. This lends extra clarity to the BTB845's Bartolini BH2 dual-coil pickups, and when you add in the 3-band active EQ, you'll have no trouble crafting the bass tones you love. Top it off with top-shelf touches like a stainless steel zero-fret and a locking output jack, and you have a bass with looks only eclipsed by playability.
