Another fantastic BTB from Ibanez!!
AC Bassy, 13.11.2018
A beautifully finished BTB from Ibanez. The burl top gives it a classy look, and it is a lot lighter than the Premium BTB basses. Tonally it balances the classic grunt and sizzle with the new dedicated BH2 Bartolini pickups, much like the original BTBs in the early 2000s but with slightly more edge to it. The bass comes without a bag- a minor issue- but with a free cable and a basic manual. Setting up took very little time, as the bass arrived typically a semitone down, and just needed minimal intonation/action adjustments on a couple of strings, all done via the nice black hardware. There is absolutely no need to play around with the truss rods.
Playing through a Vanderkley rig it has the expected punch and definition with tonal control across the 3 knobs (with mid-selector) that would make it versatile for jazz or rock gigs quite easily! The electronics are 9V compared to the older 18V but with little difference in overall sound. The low strings are thunderous but not booming (the low B can easily take detuning to A), whilst the high ones have clear musical definition without being tinny and works nicely for standard fingerstyle or slap. I cannot think of anything bad with it frankly. Delighted with this purchase (delivered promptly as well)- looks great, sounds great!
