Full Description

A mighty tone... your way

Whether you're into jazz, funk, or classic rock tones, this bass promises excellent articulation and sheer power. Propel your skilful playing out into the room with vigour. Cut through the mix. Fishman Fluence Bass Soapbar pickups are truly revolutionary, providing exceptional definition and an extensive dynamic range. They grant endless possibilities which are accompanied by a range of innovative controls including a push/pull volume knob. This enables you to explore the wonders of single-coil tones for that vintage, jazzy vibe. Thanks to a 3-way voice control switch, you will have an array of exhilarating sounds right at your fingertips. Experience classic-sounding, full-bodied tones or punchy, full frequency sounds with immense dynamics. Or, if that's not enough, switch to funk, Hi-Fi scooped tones. The choice is all yours.

An extraordinary build

It's not just ground-breaking electronics that make this bass truly heavenly, but also the neck-through construction. This meticulous design produces shimmering sustain, ensuring those high frequencies ring out with beautiful transparency and crystal-clear definition. It delivers a superbly tight low end too, for both richness and fantastic attack. Complementing the neck-through construction is a Hipshot TransTone bridge. Its string-through-body and top-load build adds a real punch whilst its brilliant stability accommodates tight string tension and balances a focused sound with even more sustain.

Divine in looks, spectacular in sound

The natural finish of the Cort A5 Ultra Ash is no teller of the trilling, fiery tonal secrets it holds. But a mahogany and ash body goes beyond undying durability and striking aesthetic. The mahogany back and sides exude wondrous warmth and resonance, whilst its ever-growing sonic potential promises you a lifetime of exquisite sound. An ash top then embellishes each note with clarity, brightness, and crisp attack.


Teaming perfectly with such a fantastic body is a maple and panga panga neck. This tonewood combination provides excellent strength that thrives with any aggressive, passionate playing. And its tonal qualities are magnificent too. The brightness of maple is balanced with the warmth of panga panga, and this tone is ideal for gigging with as it is wonderfully focused and produces minimal feedback. Panga panga is also used for the fretboard, lending itself to quick and fearless fretting techniques. It is sumptuously smooth, meaning you can slide from fret to fret in completely effortless fashion.
