Our amazing team has blended all the most sought after features by a high percentage of bassists into a single instrument.
Indeed it’s a great example of balance, simplicity and functionality; we added a vintage look to our design and allowed total expression of any bass player thanks to our awesome MB Instrument Pre on board.
Each instrument comes with a wood specs label for body, neck and fingerboard.

We couldn’t choose a better electronic than the Markbass for this instrument.
VOLUME/ VOLUME/TONE controls a definitely the best to manage the J/J pick up configuration and the TONE control (working also in the passive mode) lets the player move from Jaco or Motown style tones to more modern and open sounds. BASS/MIDDLE/HIGH controls on the active EQ section add a modern character to this vintage flavoured instrument, delivering a balanced and defined tone even using extreme settings.
