5-String Modern Basses | Product code: TRBX505-TBN | ID: 216820
5-string electric bass guitar from TRBX500 series that has a simple brief – tone. Premium mahogany construction and an ultra-musical active/passive pre-amp design deliver the flexibility and sheer tonal quality to allow user to sculpt the perfect sound for his music. The instrument features a sculpted solid mahogany body, with a mass-optimized 3D design for the optimum balance between tone and comfort coupled with perfect weight distribution. Neck design combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with 5-pc maple/mahogany laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone. The neck is connected to the body via precision fitted bolt-on joint for maximum adjustability and clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck joint shape perfectly balances strength, vibration transfer and upper-fret access. The neck is also fitted with a rosewood fingerboard with 24 frets. Scale length is 863.6 mm, nut width is 43 mm and fingerboard radius is 600 mm. The bass guitar is equipped with YGD designed H5 pickups that are defined by a clean, open tone, perfectly matched with the flexibility of the active/passive preamp design. Their quad-pole piece design and alnico magnets provide them with the power to drive the active circuit and the sensitivity and subtlety to capture every nuance in passive mode. The advanced design offers a level-matched output whether in passive or active mode and tone-switching circuitry that seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone. High-quality gold plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability and a battery alert LED installed on the back panel gives instant indication of low power to eliminate sudden power loss during performance. A high-mass die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with excellent adjustability and road-tested durability. 18mm string spacing on this 5-string model offers outstanding playability for technical slap or finger styles. Straight string pull from nut to machine head eliminates lateral tension, providing superior tuning stability and reducing overtones. Transparent Brown colour design.
