'60s Old School Mojo & Bass Sound
MVJ4-66 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 J single coil pickups 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
MVJ4-66 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 J pickups, and steel bridge, makes the MVJ4-66 best '60s Jazz-style bass with vintage mojo.
