The Cort GB Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar is a bass that offers a great blend of timeless design and modernized features. The GB Modern bass has a surprisingly lightweight design for greater comfort and enhanced playability while reducing fatigue. The GB Modern bass also features top tier visual and spec enhancements such as poplar burl top, roasted Maple neck and fingerboard, Hipshot Ultralite tuners and Babicz FCH5 bridge to reduce the weight even further, and an ultimate tone combination of Nordstrand Big Single pickup set paired with MarkBass MB Instrument Pre preamp system.
The GB Modern bass has a Poplar burl top on a Maple body with white Ash back for a stunning look and a balanced tone. The poplar burl top adds a natural beauty and a unique character to the bass, while the Maple body provides brightness and clarity. The white Ash back adds warmth and resonance to the sound. The body also has an open pore charcoal grey finish that enhances the wood grain and gives a smooth feel.
The neck of the GB Modern bass 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 22 frets with black dot inlays.
The GB Modern bass features Nordstrand Big Single pickup set that delivers the trademark Nordstrand sound with superb sound quality and value. The Big Single pickups are single coil pickups packed into a soapbar cover that use a large magnet load for a powerful and punchy sound. The pickups provide warm mids and crisp highs for a superbly balanced sound. The pickups are paired with MarkBass MB Instrument Pre preamp system that 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 GB Modern bass features Hipshot Ultralite tuners that offer tuning accuracy and stability. The tuners are lightweight and reduce the neck-dive effect. The Babicz FCH5 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.
