Cort B4 Element: A Revamped Bass with the Best Features

The Cort B4 Element is a 4-string bass guitar that combines the best features of the Artisan B-class basses with a new high-mass bridge and a rounder ergonomic body. This bass offers a great balance of warm yet full and punchy sounding lows and bright, clear and transparent highs, not to mention ash’s beautiful wood grain for more a natural aesthetic.

Roasted Maple Fingerboard and Bartolini Electronics

The 5-piece Panga-Panga/ Walnut neck has a roasted Maple fingerboard for enhanced stability and a bolder sound. The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 pickups and preamp, which provide superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound. The MK-1 also features a switchable active/passive mode for a powerful modern active sound or an organic traditional passive sound.

Hipshot Tuners and MetalCraft M Bridge

The B4 Element features Hipshot Ultralite tuners as standard equipment for tuning accuracy and stability. The solid, high-mass MetalCraft M bridge was developed with more focus on ease-of-use and greater tone transfer. Depending on the thickness of the strings, the dual string loading system allows the strings to be loaded either through the body or from the top to find the best optimal string tension, resulting in enhanced sustain, greater playability and focused sound.
