This luscious classic J4 sounds as bold as it looks. A wonderful sounding Honey Badger Pickups PJ pickup configuration makes this sound the way a bass was meant to: rich lows and mids with lustrous highs. The amber-tinted burled maple top lends a sympathetic background for the tortious shell pickguard. The poignant, robust tone is brought to you by the lightweight swamp ash, 3-band 18-volt Bartolini preamp and 3-piece maple neck. Add a maple fretboard, black Hipshot hardware and you have the recipe for one awesome sounding bass.
