Linus Klausenitzer switches to a new main bass:

Ibanez Custom Fretless BTB1896F Premium with Nordstrand Pickups

Linus Klausenitzer:

I would like to thank Ibanez Guitars and Ibanez Germany. Great guys, great partnership and mostly: great instruments!
This beauty represents everything I want in Obscura: a powerful/percussive sound in the lower frequencies and a clear/singing tone on the high strings.


  • pick ups: Nordstrand Audio Pickups
  • neck: Panga Panga/Purpleheart/Maple neck-through w/Graphite reinforcement rods
  • body: Walnut top & back/Ash wing body
  • fretboard: Bound Panga Panga fretboard

The basis of this instrument is a BTB1826E Premium.
