Modern sound, classic sound, the M5 Bass gives you the best of both worlds.
The M5 is a Maverick Bass in a 5 String model. Using the same sexy contours of the Maverick guitar, the M5 bass starts off as a solid piece of Swamp Ash that is whittled down to its vintage offset shape, with generous belly cuts and forearm relief. Add in a Hard Maple 34" Scale Neck that is bolted up to the M5 Body and you realize that you are getting a serious players' machine. The satin finish on the neck, the 21 jumbo frets; it is begging to lay down that back beat for you.
And routed in to that Swamp Ash body are two Seymour Duncan Alnico Active Humbuckers, 1 in the neck and 1 in the bridge position. The Seymour Duncan Humbuckers give you the option of Active or Passive tone. There are 2 Volume controls, 1 for each pick-up and a balance knob and the 3-band EQ control. All of this can be switched from Active to Passive via the flick of a switch on the pick-guard. It is as veristile as it gets.
Just because she is pretty, doesn't mean that the M5 Bass is a wall hanger; she wants to get out to the clubs!
Add in a Vintage Hipshot Bass Bridge to give the M5 Bass some stablity in the bottom end, combined with the vintage style tuners and you have a bass with classic good looks and all of that modern sound and feel.
The M5 Bass is available in Gloss Ebony Black.
