Product Description:

The Reverend Mercalli 5-string electric bass takes its name from Giuseppe Mercalli, a turn-of-the-century scientist who invented the scale to measure earthquake intensity. It's an appropriate choice, because this bass is full of big tones that seem to emanate from deep below. But it's more than that. The Mercalli also has clarity with vintage warmt...  Click To Read More About This Product

Overview

The Reverend Mercalli 5-string electric bass takes its name from Giuseppe Mercalli, a turn-of-the-century scientist who invented the scale to measure earthquake intensity. It's an appropriate choice, because this bass is full of big tones that seem to emanate from deep below. But it's more than that. The Mercalli also has clarity with vintage warmth. The sum of the parts makes this sonic magic happen.

A roasted maple neck with a roasted pau ferro fretboard joins the korina body with a six-bolt plate. Loaded with a Thick Brick 5 pickup (bridge) and Split 5 (neck), this earth shaker delivers strong fundamental notes on the low B with sustain and punch you’d expect from basses costing many times as much.

Master volume, tone and blend controls are headache-free, allowing you to focus on the groove. There are no heavy tuners here—Hipshot Ultralight are just that. Fashioned from aircraft-grade aluminum, they keep the Mercalli balanced and comfortable to play. A locking bridge ensures pitch-perfect tuning no matter how hard you slap or pluck the strings.

Other features include custom dome knobs, Boneite nut, and a hand-signed, initialed headstock.
