The BTB846F is a six string, fretless BTB series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2019. It was made in Indonesia as part of the Standard line.

The BTB846F features neck through body construction with a poplar burl top and okoume back on ash wings attached to a maple and walnut neck with a fretless jatoba fingerboard with abalone dot position markers. The body has a double cutaway design with very distinctive, narrow, curving horns. Components include a pair of Bartolini BH2 passive pickups with an Ibanez custom preamp with a three-band EQ, a Mono-rail bridge with 17mm string spacing, a locking Neutrik stereo output jack, a plastic nut and Ibanez tuning machines.

The BTB846 is a fretted version. The BTB845F is a five string version.

The BTB846F was discontinued after 2019.
