The first thing you’ll notice about the B-1004SE Multi-Scale will likely be its unusual arrangement of frets. A multi-scale fret design optimizes string tension so that the lower strings have a longer scale versus the higher strings, resulting in consistently excellent tone and performance at all points across the fingerboard. Bass players often report that a multi-scale design is also ergonomically preferential to standard fret designs, and that they feel natural to play, with very little learning curve required. Designed for professional players, the B-1004SE Multi-Scale provides a swamp ash body with a solid rosewood top, and a five-piece wenge/bubinga neck with rosewood fingerboard, constructed at 36.25" to 34" multi-scale. Its components include Gotoh tuners, and Hipshot Solo bridge, and acclaimed Nordstrand Big Splits hum-cancelling pickups, along with an ABQ-3MS 3-band EQ. This setup gives you incredible flexibility in tone, with an active/passive mini-switch, a mid-frequency selection mini-switch (800Hz or 400Hz), individual bass, treble, and mid EQ controls, and master volume and balance controls. Available in Natural Satin finish.
