If you are looking for a powerful classic bass, this one is for you. The extra wood involved to make a 5 string in this case really pays off in terms of sound. It is not the lightest of basses, but it is comfortable with a good strip and it is NOT neck heavy as most fivers are.
The Mexico made Classic series are built with all the essentials in mind. two single coil pickups and passive electronics get all those classic Jazz tones that have made its way into thousasnds of recordings. A true classic.
This 5 string version comes with your choice of through body ot top load stringing. The low B actually works, something not so usual in this price range.
