VINTAGE VJ74 REISSUED MAPLE F/BOARD BASS – SUNSET SUNBURST With GiG Bag
The Vintage VJ74 ReIssued bass, offered here with a stunning maple fingerboard with classic block inlay position markers, has a reputation as a workhorse bass guitar with professional, semi-professional and bass players around the world who just love its defined sound and playability.
Solid alder is the perfect choice for the body, not only to support the solid construction, but for this popular tonewood’s ability to distribute an equally fine balance of high, mid and low frequencies, delivered uncoloured to a pair of Wilkinson WOJB single coil pickups which enhance this tight, piano-like tone, with extended clarity and articulation.
Pair ash with the VJ74’s bolt-on, hard rock maple neck and maple fingerboard and you know you just can’t go wrong, for rocky-blues bass, or, just wind the tone control back a tad and enter a whole new world of jazzy, mellow soothing bass lines.
Smooth open-geared Wilkinson machine heads and a friction-free white graphite precision cut nut, ensure tuning stability, while the innovative Wilkinson three-saddle, compensated brass bridge, increases sustain and improves string intonation.
The sonic versatility of this classic bass design has proven itself over the years as the perfect bass for practically any style of music and, with its characteristic narrow neck design and medium weight tonewood construction, playing a 2 hour gig is just not a problem.
Plucked, picked, slapped, strapped or lapped, the Vintage VJ74 ReIssued Maple Fingerboard bass guitar is a real winner. Play on.
