Ibanez BTB400 (Ibanez - BTB400QM)

By MGR/Bass_Boy Pat, 02/11/2004
I got it from Academy of Sound in Leeds. Cost me £250 (shoulda been £430 but it was in a sale!!!)

Its a great active bass with a fantastic range of sounds achievable once you've got used to the controls. You can go from thick, heavy muddy tones to trebly funkness really easily. People have been saying about it having weak pickups and i can see where they're coming from but ive had no problems. Build quality is solid, its taken a few hits an isnt showin any signs. It stays in tune for ages too (probly cos of the monorail bridge).

Can be a bit over trebly sometimes and thres a fair bit o fret buzz round the 15-17 on all strings but i guess if you knew what you were doin you could sort that. (sadly i dont)

Very very solid. I was well impressed.

A fantastic bass well worth buying by anyone up to sort of high intermediate/low end of pro.

Ibanez BTB 1006E (Ibanez - BTB1006E)

By MGR/2Deep, 09/09/2005
Bass player
5 yrs.
Alt/Contemp.Christian Band & also church worship band

jazz, alt, rock, classical, gospel, I like it all at times

Got it on Ebay for $611.00. I couldn't believe the price. I've wanted one of these for a looong time. It was worth twice the price.

The feel and playability are fantastic. The B string on this is the best I've ever played. Clear well defined tones with no muddiness and the electronics are quiet.

Fretboard widens just a bit too much beyond the 19th fret or so. It's not bad, but if I was custom building I'd spec it so it ended up about 1/4 in. narrower at the 24th fret.

construction is rock solid, neck joint is tight, fretwork A+, well crafted & beautiful bass

I've wanted one of these for a long time and I don't regret getting this one!

Ibanez BTB400QM (Ibanez - BTB400QM)

By MGR/Morei Sky, 23/03/2006
Bought it 2nd hand off Ebay for £205, a complete bargin if you consider the retail price is around £360!

First of all, it looks stunning!!! when i first saw it, i instantly fell in love cause the shape & finish are just so smooth & still maintains a very dominant feel. In certain lights, the colour of the Bass changes colour, in low level lighting, it appears a black marble colour & then a purple/blackberry colour in high level lighting which i think is puka! On the technical side, the sound you can get from the bass is just brilliant! various tonal adjustments mean its a bass to suit various styles of music, & one final comment is that the bass has a Neutrik locking jack, meaning you dont have to worry bout accidently unplugging your lead as it can only be unplugged by pushing a button (has come in usefull on various occasions).

there honestly isn't anything i don't like about the bass, true enough when i recieved it, there was a bit of fret buss around the middle part of the neck but a quick adjustment to the truss rod sorted this. Some people say that the pickups are a bit weak, but this could just be a case of needing to bring the pickups closer to the strings. Personally I think the pickups are top notch.

Its an Ibanez so immediately you've got a qaulity Bass that is the perfect step up from a begginers to an intermidate bass. Its put together extremely well with the abillity to make adjustments to the pickups, saddles, bridge e.c.t. with ease! Another major pluss on the construction side is the use of individual bridges, not only does this look great, but the practical side means that there is hardly any unwanted vibrations caused to the strings (e.g. you can play an open E on the 4th string without it causing unwanted vibrations to the other strings)

I was lucky enough to get the bass for a bargain price, but i would be more then willing to pay the retail price as the bass is well worth the money!!!
