We want your bass to last a lifetime. Superior design and construction are key to delivering a solid instrument that will accompany you on your long musical journey.
All S.U.B. basses employ a superior 6 bolt neck joint. The 6 bolt neck joint, designed by Music Man, offers strength, stability and great tone transfer, whilst ensuring the neck stays in position and won’t shift under heavy load.
The neck heel allows easy access to the higher end of the fingerboard and is unobtrusive. Allowing your hands to freely move about the neck with ease.
Rest assured, your neck will stay put while your fingers roam about.
The high output humbucking pickup was designed for clarity and true reproduction of the basses natural tone, with minimal coloration.
Two rows of large magnetic pole pieces pump the strings information into the pickup, feeding the 2 band active preamp.
Tones can be aggressive, wild or mild. Its up to you to find your sound. 3 screw adjustment allow for more accurate positioning of the pickups angle and height, allowing for more precise adjustments to match the strings angle.
Active Tone Shaping Controls
This bass's tone is shaped by the onboard active 2 band preamp, with controls for volume, bass and treble offer maximum flexibility in finding your sound.
Thanks to controls for full cut and boost of bass and treble frequencies, the wide range of tones on this bass guarantee you will find the right sound, for any musical situation.
