Cort A4PLUSFMMHOPN Artisan Series A4 Plus Bass Guitar. Open Pore Natural
Figured Maple Top on Mahogany Body: -Mahogany’s warm and emphasized low-midrange is complemented by the high-midrange and treble of 5-piece Maple & Wenge neck for a perfectly balanced and coherent sound. The Flame Maple top on the body adds a high-class upgraded look and a touch of tonal definition. 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. Neck-Thru Body Construction: -When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats neck-thru-body construction. The strings vibrate across the body and neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low-end with rich mids and singing highs. 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. 5pcs Maple & Panga Panga Neck: -The strength and brightness of Maple is ideally balanced with the warm midrange of Panga Panga, resulting in superb playability, feel and tonal definition. Hipshot Ultralite Machineheads: -The Artisan basses are equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners (classic 20:1 tuning ratio) that is made of cast zinc with aluminum strings posts and mounting nuts, resulting in 30% weight reduction over other regular tuners and which results in improved balance and tuning accuracy.
