'60s Old School Mojo & Bass Sound

MVP4-62 4-string bass delivers classic '60s bass sound, '60s vintage style, and a genuine vintage vibe. It has a solid Alder body, the wood of '60s basses, and passive custom wound Alnico-V P single coil pickup for vintage tone with punch and clarity. The vintage style bridge produces the note attack and decay of the original classic bridge. Overall, this bass is very responsive for any playing style; finger, pick, slap, thumb.

Roasted Maple For Superior Neck Stability

Roasted Maple is Maple that has been kiln treated at high temperatures in an oxygen-free oven to remove moisture, sugars and other wood impurities. The result of this process is a superior, improved and stabilized neck with increased note sustain, resonance, and no dead spots.

Authentic Indian Rosewood ‘Slab’ Fingerboard

MVP4-62 4-string bass has an authentic Indian Rosewood ‘Slab’ fingerboard. A genuine Dalbergia (Rosewood) not Pau Ferro, Morado, Bolivian or other substitute. The ‘slab’ fingerboard is highly desired by vintage collectors as the wood content is more stable and resonant than the ‘mid-60s’ veneer board construction.

The combination of the Alder body, roasted Maple neck, Indian Rosewood fingerboard, custom P pickups, and steel bridge, makes the MVP4-62 best '60s P-style bass with vintage mojo.

    Did you ever try an instrument, felt the soul and the groove of a legendary musician? Search no more… at the second I layed my hands on that beauty, I felt a motown vibe à la James Jamerson and started some delicious grooves. The intonation of the instrument was perfect. The neck and the feel is out of this world. It was the delicious tone I’ve ever wanted in a bass for a vintage tone. I did not think of playing it with a pick to have a similar groove to Bobby Vega. Next time, I will totally try it.

    I have owned and played many a P Bass over many years and I can tell you the build quality is absolutely superb. The ” Torrefied” (roasted) neck is so nice, nicest I’ve ever played to be honest. The frets, nut, bridge, every aspect of this bass just oozes quality. Very fast playing neck and easy to fret. I play with a light touch and really appreciate the nice low action. Man, what an outstanding P Bass. Dave was a pleasure to do business with… keep bringing in this kind of quality Dave!
