Natural Electric Bass
Natural Electric Bass
Every bassist has their own personal preferences: some are flashy and want their instrument's finish to reflect their extravagant tastes... while others prefer a more subtle, modest look. If you're the latter, then there's a good chance you'll find a natural electric bass here that makes you excited about playing. This catalog is packed with electric basses that boast their wood's natural finish. Plus, only the most respected companies in bass manufacturing are here, including G&L, Epiphone, Rickenbacker and Lakland.
While the basses in this section don't feature outlandish paint jobs, they're still absolute stunners. Of course, the right one for you will depend on what kind of bass sound you're going for, the body shape that best represents your style and your current budget. For a moderately-priced 4-string that blends "holy grail" Alnico single-coil tone with modern Leo Fender improvements, feast your eyes on the G&L Tribute JB2 4-String Electric Bass. This top seller delivers the classic 60s tone of the original JB-2 along with a clarity and sustain that could only be found in a newer bass model. Other cool features include a cutting-edge G&L Saddle-Lock bridge, a hard-rock maple neck and your choice of a maple or rosewood fingerboard.
This selection of natural electric basses also contains extended string bass models, and any professional of the stage or studio would dig the Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 HH 5-String Electric Bass. While the Stingray is known traditionally for sporting a single humbucker, this upgraded model is loaded with 2 massive Music Man pickups with hum-canceling phantom coils. Along with an active 3-band preamp, 5-way switching and a selected hardwood body, it's obvious that the Stingray 5 HH was crafted with the experienced pro in mind.
Honestly, there are simply too many gorgeous basses with natural finishes to name them all right here. Fans of '60s British Invasion groups need to check out the Rickenbacker 4003SW Walnut Electric Bass Guitar; jazz groovers will be blown away by the MTD Kingston KZ Fretless bass. Even southpaws have high-end natural electric bass guitars here that will highlight their strongest playing traits. Your aesthetic tastes may be bashful, but you'll have a hard time not bashing away on one of the stage-ready natural electric basses in these pages.
