Ibanez Introduces Two New BTB Singlecut Basses

Ibanez has introduced two new additions to its singlecut BTB lineup. The BTB865SC and BTB866SC combine the unique, high-end aesthetics of a single cut bass with sleek and aggressive visuals. These instruments bring to bear many popular BTB features such as neck-thru construction, a mono-rail bridge, an Ibanez custom 3-band EQ, and a 35” scale length. What sets them apart is the unique combination of Ash capped body wings finished in a compelling Weathered Black Low Gloss. These design choices deliver an appearance the combines, quite effectively, the boutique attributes of natural wood tops, with the modern energy of solid finishes. Other notable features include a Rosewood fretboard, zero fret, detachable finger ramp, and medium stainless steel frets.
