Lightweight Big-Sounding 5-String Bass

Cort GB-Modern 5-string bass is developed for the J-Bass enthusiasts with a surprisingly lightweight design for greater comfort and enhanced playability while reducing fatigue. The body is cleverly designed to be light without physically tempering the body. The Maple body core is paired with light-weight Paulownia wings, then is covered with gorgeous Poplar Burl on the top side and White Ash on the back. The result is a combination of great tone woods that is excellent both sonically and aesthetically.

Roasted Maple Neck and Fretboard

By treating the Maple in an oxygen-free oven at a high temperature, the wood stabilizes and develops a golden-brownish look for enhanced stability as well as a more vintage type of look and a big bolder tone.

Nordstrand® Big Single Pickup Set

Often considered the tonal giants of the Nordstrand® pickup lineup, the Big Single is a single coil pickup packed into a soapbar cover that uses a large magnet load for that bludgeoning bawl of extreme sonic salubrity. The Big Single's wind is able to take up the entire space of its bobbin, resulting in a super packed coil that works as the distributor of the monster tone these pickups have come to be known for.

MarkBass® MB Instrument Pre Preamp

The MB INSTRUMENT PRE tone control circuits were designed not only to enhance these frequencies but to give a unique and rich response when you boost/cut them, whilst always offering a very clean and focused bass tone without losing tone details. The circuits were also developed to offer subtle differences of volume when switching between the passive and active modes.

Babicz® FCH Bridge

The lightweight FCH (Full Contact Hardware) bridge by Babicz® results in increased dynamic range, improved sustain, and pitch stability. Its double saddle housing lock feature assures the string action and intonation adjustments remain secure, even when removing strings.
