CP Thornton TR-4 Bass
My concept for this instrument was to design a modern bass with a vintage vibe.
We believe Chuck more than achieved his goal with this bass. It’s beautiful and elegant yet somewhat unassuming. And then you play it. Immediate response to any style with super low action. The bass is a featherweight and remains balanced for standing or seated positions. The integrated thumbrest is totally functional and brilliant.
The sound is very balanced with both pickups on. However each pickup when soloed has a great voice. This is the best sounding PJ bass we’ve ever heard. And it’s passive!

*Torrefied (also spelled “torrified”) wood neither swells up during humid summer months nor dries out due to dry winter air. Torrified wood will not shrink, warp, expand, or contract due to changing weather or humidity levels. Torrified wood has been heat treated or roasted until it has nearly 0% internal moisture.
