If you are looking for a bass that combines a timeless design with modern features, the Cort GB Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar is a great choice. This bass has a lightweight and comfortable body, a roasted Maple neck and fingerboard, Nordstrand single coil pickups, MarkBass preamp, Babicz bridge and Hipshot tuners. Whether you play rock, funk, jazz or any other style, this bass will deliver a powerful and versatile sound.
The body of the GB Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar is made of Paulownia wings with a soft Maple core and a Poplar burl top. This combination provides a balanced tone with warm lows and clear highs. The body also has an open pore vintage natural finish that enhances the wood grain and gives a smooth feel. The body has a single cutaway design that allows easy access to the upper frets.
The neck of the GB Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar is made of roasted Maple with a roasted maple fingerboard. The roasting process removes moisture and increasing stability of the wood, resulting in a golden-brownish look and a bolder sound. The neck also has an angled headstock that improves tuning stability and reduces string tension. The neck has 22 frets with black block inlays and a 35" scale length for better intonation on the low B string.
The GB Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar features Nordstrand single coil pickups that deliver the trademark Nordstrand sound with superb sound quality and value. The pickups are hum-canceling and have a wide frequency range. The pickups are paired with MarkBass preamp 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 Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar features Babicz 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 18mm (0.708") for the 5-string model. The GB Series Modern 5-String Bass Guitar also features Hipshot tuners that offer tuning accuracy and stability. The tuners are lightweight and reduce the neck-dive effect.
