6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Details
The Ibanez BTB33 5 string bass is designed for players looking to expand their melodic range and reach those extra high notes for new soloing possibilities. The tuning maintains a standard low-E string and adds a fifth high-C string for increased upper range. This guitar features a 33 inch short scale neck to provide smaller fret gaps overall and a 'slinkier' feel for easier vibrato and bends. It also features a new 'Finger Ramp', placed in-between the two Bartolini pickups to assist with right-hand technique. The pickups bring clarity and warmth with a well-rounded frequency response across the range. The inclusion of a 3-band EQ ensures ultimate tonal sculpting. This guitar comes from the Bass Workshop series from Ibanez and is designed to give you boutique-quality instruments in terms of look, feel and sound. Featuring naturally finished ash with a mahogany wing, alongside a through-neck constructed from maple/bubinga, this is an effortlessly stylish bass guitar which has all the playing comforts and tonal abilities to make it a highly desirable instrument, capable of exploring solo techniques alongside the more traditional styles of playing.

Ibanez BTB Bass Workshop

The Bass Workshop series of instruments from Ibanez are designed to bring boutique-quality guitars with custom design features at a more affordable price point than luthier-made instruments. The Ibanez BTB33 is a 5-string bass with extra high C string and short 33" scale length to provide you with more scope for soloing and a higher melodic range.

Boutique Quality Woods & Construction

The BTB33 is crafted from lightweight and resonant maple with a mahogany wing for added warmth and playing comfort. The body features a natural oil finish to show off the stunning wood grain and through-neck design, whilst the woods provide a bright and well-rounded tone with excellent sustain due to this construction. The neck is also maple with bubinga strips for added strength and stability. The 5 piece design is visible throughout the body and rear of the neck, again finished in natural oil, and provides an elegant and hand-crafted aesthetic.

A Soloist's Dream Playing Experience

The BTB33's 33" scale length provides a more 'slinky' playing feel and is perfect for vibratos and string bends that bassists will love when combined with the extra high C string. The asymmetric body and slim neck with neck-though design provides a wonderful playing feel with no boundaries to the top frets. The unique 'Finger Ramp' sits inbetween the two pickups and provides a tactile playing surface for the right hand, ensuring the fingers don't reach too far between the strings and assisting in soloing speed. This is guitar designed to be utilised through all 24 frets and players will enjoy testing the new melodic range available on this instrument.

Active Electronics And Bartolini Pickups

The BTB33 features Bartolini BTB33 pickups which are designed to balance clarity with warmth and provide a tight bottom-end with full mid-range; perfect for a cutting yet full-sounding solo tone. The custom Ibanez 3-band EQ and 3-way mid frequency switch offers a great variety of tonal sculpting possibilities which can enhance chordal work as well as complex soloing.

Hardware

The Mono Rail V Bridge ensures string isolation as each string is individually locked down to the body giving maximum string vibration transfer without any interference. Elsewhere, the jack socket is a Neutrik locking output jack which should ensure reliable and confident stage use of a cable without the risk of it being pulled out. The Graph Tech Black Tusq XL nut gives you excellent sustain and a clear sound.

About Ibanez Basses

The preferred instruments of many awe inspiring bass players, amongst them Fieldy from Korn, Paul Gray from Slipknot and Peter Iwers of In Flames, Ibanez Basses continue to be the first stop for learners and professionals alike, no matter what musical genre they exist in.
