    What Vintage say:

    Ash as has often been described as a complete ‘musical tree’ and, along with alder, has been the popular tonewood choice for building bass guitars for decades, including the outstanding Vintage VJ4 Series of ReIssued bass guitars.

    The Vintage VJ74 ReIssued bass has a reputation as a workhorse bass guitar with professional, semi-professional and bass players around the world who just love its defined sound and playability.

    Solid ash is the perfect choice for the body, not only to support the solid construction, but for this popular tonewoods ability to distribute an equally fine balance of high, and low frequencies, with a slightly scooped mid-range, delivered uncoloured to a pair of Wilkinson WOJB single coil pickups which enhance this tight, piano-like tone, with extended clarity and articulation.It goes without saying that ash of course with its wide distinctive grade pattern, looks stunning to the eye under a skilfully applied clear translucent finish, seen here on the VJ74 Maple fingerboard Natural Ash bass.

    Pair ash with the VJ74’s bolt-on, hard rock maple neck and maple fingerboard with classic black, block fretboard position markers and you know you just can’t go wrong, for rocky-blues bass, or, just wind the tone control back a tad and enter a whole new world of jazzy, mellow soothing bass lines. This classic bass design continues with chrome plated pickup and bridge cover, while smooth, open-geared Wilkinson machine heads and a friction free white graphite precision cut nut, ensure tuning stability. The addition of revolutionary Wilkinson designed three-saddle, compensated brass bridge, increases sustain and improves string intonation.

    The sonic versatility of this classic bass design with its timeless style, has proven itself over the years as the perfect bass for practically any style of music and, with its characteristic narrow neck design and medium weight tonewood construction, playing a 2 hour gig is just not a problem.
