For bassists who seek top-of-the-line professional sounds and build quality through a single cutaway body shape which improves the body-neck balance for added comfort while still providing unfettered access to the high frets. Due to popular demand, the Artisan Single-Cut basses are now available in non-multi-scale version for conventional aesthetics and playing style. The new poplar burl top not only beautifies the already great looking bass but adds well-balanced sonic characteristics in combination with swamp ash body for a bright and punchy modern sound.
Single Cutaway Bass: The single cutaway body shape improves the body-neck balance for added comfort while still providing unfettered access to the high frets.
Poplar Burl Top on Swamp Ash Body: The strikingly figured Poplar Burl top and Swamp Ash complement each other perfectly to produce a warm yet punchy high-midrange sound that will cut through the mix with authority.
Bartolini® MK-1 Pickups: The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.
Bartolini® MK-1 EQ: Bartolini’s renowned MK-1 preamp provides powerful yet transparent boost along with its trademark crisp high-end. The MK-1 transfers the natural liveliness of the bass through a flexible 3-band equalizer for a variety of applications ranging from studio recording to large concert halls. It also provides a switchable active/passive mode for a powerful modern active sound or an organic traditional passive sound.
Hipshot® TransTone Bridge: The string-thru-body and top-load construction facilitates greater tonal range while adding punch and enhancing sustain, perfectly complementing the longer 34” scale’s tighter string tension and focused sound.
