Ibanez BTB 6 String Multiscale "Hercules" JPCS10 50th Anniversary Bass Guitar *Demo*
An exclusive 1 of 1 hand made by Ibanez in Japan for their 50th anniversary!
Serving as a blueprint for the next evolution of this venerable Ibanez bass, this Japan Custom Shop iteration merges the renowned and thunderous tones of the BTB line with the modern benefits of multi-scale construction. The centerpiece of this custom design is the unique combination of scale-lengths employed. The B string features a robust 36” scale while the high C is 33.5”. This creates an exceptional balance in the feel and timbre of each string. The shorter scale on the high C adds a touch of warmth, while the super long 36” low B exhibits a commanding, well-defined fundamental, without being overpowering. Additionally, the less dramatic spread in scale lengths versus the production multi-scale BTB models, means this bass can run the gamut of different styles, but bassists who make their home playing fusion and other highly technical styles will be particularly satisfied with this instrument’s design.

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!Devin, L'arrivee D-60
