Cort GB Modern 4 Bass Guitar, Open Pore Vintage Natural
A great bass has just the right blend of timeless design and modernized features. The GB Modern bass is developed for the J-Bass enthusiasts with a surprisingly lightweight design for greater comfort and enhanced playability while reducing fatigue. Also featured are top tier visual and spec enhancements such as roasted maple neck and fretboard, Hipshot Ultralite Tuners and Babicz FCH4 Bridge to reduce the weight even further, and an ultimate tone combination of Nordstrand Big Single Pickup Set paired with MarkBass MB Instrument Pre preamp system.es.
The GB Modern’s body is cleverly designed to be light without physically tempering the body. The maple body core is paired with light-weight paulownia wings, then gets covered with gorgeous poplar burl on the top side and white ash on the back, resulting in a combination of great woods that is very aesthetically pleasing.
Luminlay side dot position marks make it easy for players to see the fretboard position markers when performing on dark stages.
The Nordstrand Big Single is a single coil pickup packed into a soapbar cover that uses a large magnet load for that bludgeoning bawl of extreme sonic salubrity. The Big Single's wind is able to take up the entire space of its bobbin, resulting in a super packed coil that works as the distributor of the monster tone these pickups have come to be known for.
Known for their world-class amplifiers, MarkBass created the MB INSTRUMENT PRE. Its tone control circuits were designed not only to enhance these frequencies but to give a unique and rich response when you boost/cut them, whilst always offering a very clean and focused bass tone without losing tone details. The circuits were also developed to offer subtle differences of volume when switching between the passive and active modes. It offers a wide range of wiring/application options, and works at 9V with very low power consumption for an exceptionally long battery life.
