Modern Vintage MVJ4-66 4-String Bass
Inspired by the classic 1960s designs. For the player who wants the sound, look and feel of a vintage bass but with added improvements and updates.
Steel bridge with vintage ‘screw saddles’ to maintain the attack/decay of the original vintage bass. Use flatwound strings and get the true Motown sound. No foam or string dampers required!
The neck is Torrefied* Maple which improves stability, and increases the note sustain. It also improves the ‘speak’ of the bass. The profile of the neck is modelled after curated vintage instruments that are regarded as having the ‘most traditional’ neck shapes of the era.

*Torrefied (also spelled “torrified”) wood neither swells up during humid summer months nor dries out due to dry winter air. Torrified wood will not shrink, warp, expand, or contract due to changing weather or humidity levels. Torrefied wood has been heat treated or roasted until it has nearly 0% internal moisture.
