Overview

A bass as tough and aggressive as its namesake

Designed for the modern player who wants a combination of aggressive style and high-end specs, the Apocalypse bass series is build to stand up to its namesake. With a carbon-fiber-reinforced maple/paduak neck topped with an ebony fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo fret, it lays fast ad easy, while the Apocalypse Bass humbuckers pump out massive, well-defined low end with great upper mid-range presence. Series/parallel/split switching adds extra sonic versatility, and the Custom Bridge allows for either top-mount or through-the-body stringing.

Features

  • Satin-finished swamp ash body
  • 34" scale maple/paduak neck with 24-fret ebony fretboard
  • Apocalypse Bass humbucker with series/split/parallel switching
  • Custom-5 high-mass bridge offers a choice of top-mount or through body stringing

Buy this bass for aggressive tone and modern versatility
