Vintage VJ75MNAT 5 String Bass, Natural Ash

With its defined sound and incredible playability, the exceptionally well built Vintage VJ75 ReIssued bass has gained a reputation as a solid and dependable workhorse, and as the perfect instrument for making the 4 – 5 string transition to enjoy the sonic versatility of an extra low B string.

Inspired by classic designs, the VJ75MNAT's Ash body feels tight and comfortable, and provides excellent resonance and tone, which when coupled with the Hard Maple bolt on neck and its 20 Medium profile frets, combines to create an instantly playable instrument.

Pickups are two Wilkinson WOJ single coil pickups (WOJB5F - neck, WOJB5R - bridge) providing ultimate clarity and articulation, which can easily be manipulated by way of the two volume and one tone controls. An adjustable bridge provides improved intonation all over the fretboard, while a 39mm white graphite nut and Wilkinson WJBL175 machine heads ensure smooth, and stable tuning.

    What Vintage say:

    The Vintage VJ75 ReIssued Series is the ideal choice for bass players looking for tight, solid, extended low frequencies within high quality 5 string bass guitars.

    With a reputation as a workhorse 5 string bass guitar among professionals, semi-professionals and bass players around the world, the exceptionally well built Vintage VJ75 ReIssued Series models are also perfect for bassists making the 4 – 5 string transition and to enjoy the sonic versatilities and the physical benefits of an extra low B string.

    The Vintage 5 string VJ75 ReIssue Maple Fingerboard bass guitar with a beautiful natural ash finish, is a fine example indeed of this classic bass guitar’s timeless design. It goes without saying that ash of course, with its wide distinctive grain pattern, looks stunning to the eye under a skilfully applied clear translucent finish, seen here on this bass. Ash is also a popular choice within the world of highly skilled bass guitar luthiers for its strength within construction and, for its ability as a superior tonewood to distribute an equally fine balance of high, and low frequencies, with a slightly scooped mid-range. A pair of Wilkinson WOJB5 single coil pickups are the perfect choice to enhance this tight, piano-like tone, with extended clarity and articulation.

    Pair ash with the VJ75’s bolt-on, hard maple neck and maple fingerboard featuring 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. The neck is sleek, fast and palm friendly as notes seem to leap off the fingerboard with all the sonic benefits of that added low B string.

    Smooth open-geared Wilkinson machine heads and a friction-free white graphite precision cut nut, ensure tuning stability, while the fully adjustable Wilkinson bridge increases sustain and ensures accurate string intonation.

    The sonic versatility of this classic 5 string bass design has proven itself over the years as the perfect bass guitar 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.
