The Vintage V96 ReIssued 5-String Active Bass signifies the whole concept of a well made 5 string bass guitar, offering exceptional playability and a full dynamic tonal range.

Eastern poplar is the ideal tonewood for the lightweight body, highly resonant, vibrant and capable of producing big muscle bound overtones and harmonic content with exceptional depth, warmth and with natural high end clarity.

Indeed the Vintage V96 is a beefy bass guitar in all departments, and looks cool to say the least with a skilfully applied, very attractive Flamed Tobacco Sunburst, hard rock, bolt-on maple neck and fingerboard with contrasting black dot position markers.

All hardware is chrome including smooth open-geared Wilkinson WJBL200 machine heads, a Wilkinson 5 saddle adjustable bridge and control plate featuring chrome controls knobs.

Without doubt, the Vintage V96 is pretty to look at, but aesthetics aside, the heart of every instrument is its tone, it's here that this stunning bass excels.

The sonic versatility of this beautifully crafted bass guitar is quite outstanding and, the Wilkinson double coil WSM5 pickup, is one of the many features that has made the Vintage V96 Active 5 string bass so popular with bass players around the world.

This power house pickup with its immense grunt, monstrous, huge mid range punch and top end clarity, is installed in the bridge position where strings have less movement and naturally sound brighter. Needless to say then, that this bass guitar with its active circuitry featuring Volume, Bass, Middle and Treble controls, has the ability to effortlessly cut through any band or recording mix.

Whilst the Vintage V96 is renowned for delivering classic sounding rich lows and stabbing high frequencies, the 3-band EQ can be set for warm, rich tones, again, highlighting the tonal option within this extremely versatile bass guitar. It's also the perfect choice for bassists making the 4 - 5 string transition and to enjoy the sonic versatilities and the physical benefits of an extra low B string.

Funk, rock, disco or pop, the Vintage V96 ReIssued 5-String Active Bass is a winner…and some. Play on.
