We also have the Natural color version, the A5 Plus SCFF OPN!
The new A5 Plus SCFF is Cort’s bold foray into innovative modern bass
concepts such as a single-cutaway for enhanced body-neck balance and
multi-scale fanned frets for a longer scale length on the bass strings
(from 35.5”) to shorter scale length on the treble strings (to 34”). The
result is a state-of-the-art bass for the most discriminating musician.
Single Cutaway Fanned-Frets Bass
The single cutaway body shape improves the body-neck
balance for added comfort while still providing unfettered access to the
high frets while the multi-scale fanned frets produces more tension for
the low strings, resulting in a tighter and more focused lower register
When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats
neck-thru-body construction. The strings vibrate across the body and
neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the
low-end with rich mids and singing highs.
Bartolini MK-1 pickups
The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1
while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty
of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a
superbly balanced sound.
Individual Hardtail Bridge
Each string has its own dedicated hardtail bridge unit,
greatly improving string separation and reducing crosstalk for greatly
enhanced articulation and definition.
An African hardwood, Pangapanga has characteristics of
Wenge and produces a tight and coherent sound that mates extremely well
with the instrument’s multi-laminate neck-thru-body construction.
Hipshot Ultralite Machineheads
A5 Plus SCFF is equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners
(classic 20:1 tuning ratio) that is made of cast zinc with aluminum
strings posts and mounting nuts, resulting in 30% weight reduction over
other regular tuners and which results in improved balance and tuning
Spalted Maple top on Swamp ash body
Classic body tone wood Swamp Ash is mated with exotic
Spalted Maple top to strike an ideal balance between the traditional and
the modern - both in looks and in sound.
5pcs Maple&PangaPanga neck
The strength and brightness of Maple is ideally balanced
with the warm midrange of PangaPanga, resulting in superb playability,
feel and tonal definition.
