John D'Angelico is widely regarded as one of the greatest archtop guitar makers of the 20th century. From his original designs to the latest reissues of D'Angelico classics, every single instrument that leaves the D'Angelico production line is not only a guitar, it's a work of art. The same can be said for D'Angelico's stellar line-up of acoustic and electric basses. D'Angelico basses are crafted with the same attention to detail and top-quality materials as the other members of the D'Angelico family and appeal to musicians of every genre. So whether you're a jazz enthusiast searching for the perfect smooth-sounding bass or a rock' n' roller who wants a bass that tackles even the most complicated passages with ease, chances are there's a D'Angelico bass here for you.
D'Angelico's Mott Cutaway Acoustic is an instrument that blends style, tradition and innovation into a single smooth-sounding bass. If you crave comfort during those extended studio and jam sessions, the Mott is the bass for you. It's constructed with a slim maple neck and rosewood fingerboard that fit perfectly into the palm of your hand. Add in the Sitka spruce top and flame maple back and sides and you've got bass that's lightweight in design, but robust in sound and stature.
If you're a bassist who wants an instrument that's a bit more true to John D'Angelico's original designs, check out the EX Bass Guitar.

Ideal for both stage and studio use, the EX Bass is an exceptional instrument through and through.
