This is a new GB series bass for J-Bass enthusiasts with visual and spec enhancements. Newly added active electronics enables bassists to explore wider range of sound spectrum, while keeping the aesthetics as traditional as possible. The highly sought-after roasted maple neck and fretboard, which has been market tested and proven by B4/B5 ASRM models, provides enhanced stability as well as a more vintage type of look and a big bolder tone.
Roasted Maple Neck & Fingerboard
By treating the Maple in an oxygen-free oven at a high temperature, the wood stabilizes and develops a golden-brownish look for enhanced stability as well as a more vintage type of look and a big bolder tone.
Swamp Ash Body
Swamp Ash is one of the most popular and widely-used woods for solid-body electric guitars and basses. It is light weight but has a surprisingly strong, tight and punchy sound with the emphasis on the high-midrange. This character makes Swamp Ash a beloved tonewood of discriminating bassists who want a strong fundamental tone that will cut through and be heard clearly in the mix. The natural beauty of Swamp Ash with its distinctive grain patterns makes it ideal for transparent and natural finishes.
Voiced Tone VTB-ST Pickups
The new Voiced Tone J-style single-coil pickups perfectly complement the big robust acoustic sound of the bass with modern clarity, transparency and vintage warmth. Painstakingly developed by Cort’s engineers by drawing on decades of pickup winding experience, the Voiced Tone pickups feature the highest-grade components and winding techniques to allow the natural character of the guitar to be faithfully delivered to the amp.
1 Volume(Push/Pull) 1 Blend & 2 Band EQ
Newly added active electronics enables bassists to explore wider range of sound spectrum, and can be either engaged or disengaged with a push/pull volume knob.
Ergonomic Neck Joint
Designed and implemented to facilitate easy access to the upper register of the fingerboard, the new Ergonomic Neck Joint increases playing comfort while reducing tendon stress and awkward wrist and finger positions. Now you can solo away and reach the highest notes with confidence as well as greatly improved playability.
The time-tested vintage bridge does what it is supposed to do without any frills or hassles while providing the classic tone that J-style basses are known for.
