Vintage vibe, modern edge.
The Badwater Capricorn electric bass has all of the custom-shop vibe of a vintage bass without the huge price tag. Each bass is hand-distressed with Axl's award-winning Badwater finishes, so every single instrument is one-of-a-kind—just like you!
The original design of the Capricorn bass combines classic elements with modern appointments to appeal to players who appreciate vintage style but want a bass that sets them apart from the rest.
The Badwater Capricorn Bass (AJ-820) has an offset alder body, a maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. The industry-standard 34" scale length helps ensure excellent tone and intonation, while two single-coil EMG-designed alnico pickups provide round low end with plenty of midrange punch.
Independent volume controls for each pickup make it easy to dial in a range of tones, from warm and fat to crisp and aggressive. The antiqued two-piece pickguard is reminiscent of classic designs, but adds a subtle modern edge, and the vintage-style bridge and elephant ear tuners complete the vibe of a bass that bridges the gap between vintage and modern. Case sold separately.
