100% made in Canada Bass with an incredibly low price tag. Amazing value for money!
For the price of a Mexican-Korean-Chinese made bass you get a professional instrument that looks great, plays like butter and sounds really classic and solid. We are really surprised by this series of basses.
With a seismic rock-solid tone and style, and featuring a solid Canadian Laurentian basswood body, the Godin Shifter Classic 5 Desert Green HG MN (Maple neck) is a light and gig-friendly bass. It comes loaded with powerful Godin Passive PJ pickups, controlled by 1x volume, 1x tone, and a 4-way selector switch.
You get a vintage P sound using the neck pickup, a very defined (and full) Jazz Bass sound using the bridge unit plus the cool PJ sound that is slightlier hollow and modern when you blend both pickups in paralle. But there's more: there's an extra Series mode that combines both pickups but with a darker/fuller sound that will drive a band like nobody's business. Cool.
The low B is incredibly good. Much better than on any "famous US brand"... you know what we mean. Also we love the fact that while being 5 string it keeps the vintage look and sound. Great.
Best bass in it's price range by far. You could spend twice as much on a similar US made bass and you wouldn't get this quality. We are amazed!
