Pickups that pack a punch

Limitless potential. The Cort Artisan B4 is equipped with a powerful Bartolini MK-1 active pickup. Characterised by their ability to punch through the mix with pure power, active pickups are crafted to give your bass sound that extra layer of depth. Producing thick, warm mids and sparkling highs – the MK-1 provides a beautifully balanced tone that simply oozes with quality.


They’re versatile, too. From punk, to rock – or even pop – you can count on the Artisan B4 to deliver in every musical situation. A hidden piezo pickup lets you find the perfect balance between the punch of the MK-1, and the authentic, acoustic quality of the piezo. So you can customise your tone, your way. Give your sound that unique flair, and define your bass’s voice with your own style for a truly personalised performance.

Fretless feel

The Cort B4FL features the unique sound and feel you can only get from a fretless bass. With no fret wires acting as barriers to your movement around the fingerboard, you can perform smooth slides and glissandos up and down the scale. The jatoba used for the fingerboard is supremely sleek - a stunning playing surface that your fingertips will fall in love with. And, as is a bonus with all fretless basses, if your tuning drops out mid-song, you can compensate by adjusting your playing positions. In other words, you aren't held back by frets. Experience true freedom in your playing.

Warm acoustic character

Natural tone to add a new dimension to your bass playing. The Artisan B4 MHPZ features a hollow body made entirely from premium mahogany tonewood. This is superb for bringing authentic acoustic resonance into your bass playing. Your music will benefit from rich, unique tones that'll suit pretty much any genre you can think of. And the added sustain that the hollow body brings means every note you hit will sing with fullness and clarity.

Play with freedom

Bass playing shouldn’t be a chore. And yet, playability can often be overlooked when it comes to finding your new bass guitar. Luckily, Cort knows how important this is. And they've ensured that every detail of the Artisan B4’s design is fine-tuned for an effortless playing experience, free of restraint.


Equipped with a hardmaple neck, the B4 is ideal both picking and slapping techniques. Transitions between frets are smoother than ever, as your hand glides across the silk-like surface of the jatoba fretboard. What’s more – the chambered mahogany body is calved into a double-cutaway shape, letting you reach the highest notes without stress or struggle. So you can solo, slap, and pick for hours of practice and performance.
