From Ibanez:

It was 1999 when Ibanez launched the BTB bass. Now, Ibanez is pleased to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BTB by introducing the fantastic BTB20TH6 anniversary model.

One of the hallmarks of the BTB is the beautiful combination of select-grade materials. The BTB20TH6 has a Maple / Walnut neck with a Panga Panga fretboard, a Flamed Maple top and an Ash and Okume body. The BTB20TH6 has neck-through construction, providing massive sustain and excellent stability.

The beauty of the combined woods is accentuated by the eye-catching BTL (Brown Topaz Burst Low Gloss).

The Panga Panga fretboard has an exotic grain and produces a tight low and mid range with a sharp high end attack. The stainless steel frets, well known for bright tone and long durability, are carefully installed on the beautiful fingerboard. The BTB also features a zero fret to provide accurate intonation while allowing open strings to ring with the same resonance as notes played higher up the neck.

We selected Nordstrand Big Single pickups, paired with our Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ, for the BTB20TH6 anniversary model. The Nordstrand "Big Single" is as big and meaty as a single coil soapbar-style pickup can be, and produces a full-bodied, powerful, aggressive tonal texture, while still retaining the clarity that's characteristic of single coil pickups. The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w / 3-way mid-frequency switch offers tonal variations that enhance simple chord work as well as complex soloing.
The MR5S bridge has adjustable saddles for string spacing adjustments, answering every bassist's individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. The saddles can be adjusted + / -1.5mm.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
