The slim neck feels great and it’s so easy to play. This bass is very responsive for any playing style; finger, pick, slap, thumb.

’70s Vintage Bass Sound

The solid Alder body on this '70s 4-string bass produces that loved authentic vintage sound. And the passive custom wound fibre bobbin Alnico-V J single coil pickups deliver the vintage tone with punch and clarity.
