Ibanez BTB740NTL overview

  • 1Description

Styled in a natural low-gloss finish, the Ibanez BTB740 is a four-string electric bass with a mahogany and ash wing body, as well as a walnut top. Its five-piece 35"-scale neck is crafted out of maple and walnut, with graphite reinforcement rods as well. The neck is joined to the body in the neck-through-body style, which bolsters sustain. Atop the neck sits a jatoba fingerboard with 24 medium stainless-steel frets and abalone dot inlays. A Mono-Rail V bridge affixes strings to the body.

For electronics, the instrument utilizes two Bartolini BH2 soapbar pickups, which provide a tight low end, a punchy midrange, and a smooth response overall. An on-board Ibanez Custom Electronics EQ gives you a three-position midrange control, and the ability to boost or cut the lows, mids, or highs. A pickup-balancer knob and a volume knob help you shape your timbre further. 

35" Scale
The extra-long 35" scale offers tight, even tension with no flopping on the low end, and added sustain on the high strings. It also bolsters articulation.
Neck-Through Construction
Neck-through construction provides massive sustain and excellent stability.
Deep Cutaway
The BTB's deep cutaways allow effortless access to the upper frets.
Jatoba Fingerboard
Jatoba features a reddish-brown hue and produces a rich midrange with a clear high end.
Stainless-Steel Frets
The stainless-steel frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on.
Zero Fret
A zero fret provides accurate intonation, while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played up the neck.
Bartolini BH2 Pickups and 3-Band EQ
The Bartolini BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy midrange, and a smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration of these pickups maximizes articulation, while a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field. This provides balanced string-to-string pickup response. Combined with the Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ and a 3-way mid-frequency switch, the BTB Premium offers many tonal possibilities.
Mono-Rail V Bridge
The Mono-rail V provides bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
Neutrik Locking Output Jack
This jack provides a stable and secure connection that doesn't allow for accidental disconnection.
