The first thing you’ll notice about the B-1004 Multi-Scale and 5-string B-1005 Multi-Scale will likely be its unusual arrangement of frets. A multi-scale fret design optimizes string tension so that the lower strings have a longer scale compared to the higher strings, resulting in consistently excellent tone and performance at all points across the fingerboard. Bass players often report that a multi-scale design is also ergonomically preferential to standard fret designs, and that they feel natural to play, with very little learning curve required. Designed for professional players, the B-1004 Multi-Scale and B-1005 Multi-Scale provide a swamp ash body with a top made of solid ziricote, an environmentally friendly and terrific-looking tonewood.
