Product Ref: 31672
With 5 strings, this bass immediately offers more versatility to your bass playing without adding a hefty price tag. Two single coil bass pickups in a classic jazz positioning, produces an authentic classic sound; one that is under you control at all times.
The Lexington 5 String Bass Guitar is finished off with high grade all chrome components. Featuring a stylish black vintage bridge, black die-cast chrome tuners, and three matching black control knobs, this bass will function as you want it to whilst looking great.
The Lexington 5 String Bass Guitar has been designed with playability in mind. The Agathis wood body has been specially selected for its light weight and resonant properties, and has been ergonomically crafted and shaped to give an incredibly comfortable playing position.
The bolt on neck adds to the brilliant resonance of this bass, whilst also adding more attack and 'snap' to the sound. The Canadian Maple neck gives a smooth and fast feel, and is complimented by the Rosewood fretboard, giving an even and comfortable playing surface.
Featuring an array of professional features, as well as stunning looks, the BP80 amp works great at home, on stage or in the studio. With 80W RMS, it is big enough for small gigs and practices, but small enough too keep out of the way in a domestic environment. The custom red 12" speaker has been specially designed not just to look great, but also to sound great and perform under the toughest of conditions. It combines the direct sound more associated with smaller speakers, with the warmth found with larger speakers, to provide great all-round tone.
The BP80 has a focus on sound and tone. It features a gain control, as well as a master volume, as well as a 4-band EQ, which means you will always be able to drive the right sound out of the 12" speaker, whatever bass you have and whatever style you are playing. Also included is a built in Chorus effect with a click off and level control. This can be used in moderation to broaden the sound a little, or be turned right up for a full blown 80's sound.
This bass amp was awarded 4 out of 5 by Music Radar - a leading online publication for musicians.
