With so many excellent appointments normally found on bass guitars and accessories at much higher price points, the Vintage Coaster Series V495 Bass Guitar Pack offers a lot more than just an exciting choice as a first 'serious' rock bass guitar outfit.Â
With a stunning finish, 3-ply scratch plate, chrome hardware and black control knobs, the Vintage Coaster Series double cutaway V495 5 string electric bass guitar is a fine example.
With a solid paulownia body, a bolt-on maple neck, 20 fret maple fingerboard inlaid with block position markers, the V495 delivers tight, natural piano-like tones, with a fine balance of high, mid and low frequencies enhanced by a pair of Entwistle XJC single coil pickups.
The pickups themselves have been specifically designed for the V495 by none other than the legendary British guitar builder and designer Alan Entwistle.
Tech heads may like to know that the Entwistle pickups feature quality ceramic magnets, are wound with high grade copper wire and dipped in high viscosity wax to isolate and protect the coils from moisture, whilst reducing microphonic feedback issues.
For non-savvy tech head guitar players, just plug in and listen to the exceptional clarity and full range tonal response thatÅ¾s perfect for all kinds of music, from country to blues, jazz to pop, rock and metal.
With super smooth, open-geared machine heads, a fully adjustable 5 string saddle bridge, intonation is accurate, precise and ensures tuning stability.
