The Cort Artisan Series A4 4-String Bass Guitar is a high-quality bass that features a natural aesthetic and a powerful sound. The A4 features a figured maple top on a mahogany body for a balanced tone with warm lows and clear highs. The figured maple top also has an open pore natural finish that enhances the beautiful wood grain and adds a smooth feel. The A4 is designed for serious bassists who want a versatile bass with superb playability and sound quality.
The neck of the A4 is made of roasted maple with a roasted maple fingerboard for enhanced stability and a bolder sound. The roasting process removes moisture and impurities from the wood, resulting in a golden-brownish look for a more vintage vibe. The neck also has an angled headstock that improves tuning stability and reduces string tension. The neck has 24 frets with abalone dot inlays.
The A4 is equipped with Bartolini MK-1 pickups and preamp, which provide superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 pickups deliver plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound. The MK-1 preamp features 3-band EQ, volume control, active/passive switch, mid frequency switch, and treble boost switch for a wide range of tone combinations and manipulations. The preamp allows you to switch between active and passive modes for different musical situations.
The A4 features Hipshot Ultralite tuners that offer tuning accuracy and stability. The tuners are lightweight and reduce the neck-dive effect. The MetalCraft M bridge is a solid, high-mass bridge that enhances resonance and tone transfer. The bridge has a dual string loading system that allows you to load the strings either through the body or from the top to find the best optimal string tension, resulting in enhanced sustain, greater playability and focused sound. The bridge has a string spacing of 19mm (0.750") for the 4-string model.
