’70s Vintage Style 5-String Bass

This 5-string bass has the sound and styling of a ’70s bass. It’s designed to provide great playability with a comfy slim neck profile and a flatter radius fingerboard. So, when you put this bass in your hands, you’ll notice how easy it is to play and how great it feels.

’70s Vintage Bass Sound

The MVJ5-75 bass has the loved tone of ’70s era basses. From the low B-string all the way up the fingerboard, it produces balanced tone with authority and it will cut through on the gig and on studio tracks.

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.

The combination of the Alder body, roasted Maple neck, Indian Rosewood fingerboard, custom J pickups, and the steel bridge, best replicates the vintage mojo with a boutique playing experience.
