This beauty is topped with quilted maple for a high end look, paired with a warm Dragon Eye Burst fininsh. The 5 piece neck offers great stability and classy look. Although the pickups are passive, your tone won't be. The 3-band EQ works in conjunction with a coil tap switch for maximum control over a wide variety of professional bass tones. Tap Mode (single coil) creates a punchy, dynamic sound with superior articulation. Series Mode (humbucking) delivers a full, warm tone, and Power Tap Mode provides the best of both worlds-combining the clarity of the single coil with the fat bottom end of the humbucker.
