Tonewood of the '60s 4-string basses. The solid Alder body provides the classic warm mid-forward tone that's heard on countless recordings. The MVP4-62 body is solid Alder, not chambered, for authentic vintage tone.
'60s Style Passive Pickups
Custom wound Alnico-V single coil pickups deliver '60s 4-string bass vintage tone with punch and clarity. 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.
‘Slab’ Indian Rosewood Fingerboard
Authentic Indian Rosewood fingerboard not Pau Ferro, Morado, Bolivian or other substitute. The period-correct ‘slab’ fingerboard is highly desired by vintage collectors as the wood content is more stable and resonant than the ‘mid-60s’ veneer board construction.
Steel Vintage-Style Bridge
Period-correct bridge made true vintage-style with a steel plate and steel threaded screw saddles instead of pot metal or brass. The result is note attack and decay more like the original '60s 4-string bass.
