Alder Body & Rosewood Fretboard

The BB425X’s body is constructed from Alder, a highly popular choice of wood for bass production, producing a smooth and deep tone, whilst remaining lightweight and highly durable.

Vintage Style Pickups

The BB425X features two powerful pickups, a split-coil and single pickup. These premium-quality pickups deliver vintage-styled tone reminiscent of popular guitar models and tones.

Diagonal Body Thru Stringing & Neck

One of the most unique design aspects of the BB425X is the diagonal body thru stringing. This work by angling the string at 45 degrees at the saddle, reducing stress and securing the tensions of the strings. The larger than normal attachment area to the saddle helps for improved transmission of vibration, resulting in a fuller and more articulate sound. The 5-piece bolt-on neck is constructed from Maple and Nato for maximum durability and style. This helps to prevent the neck from warping or curling over long periods of time. The neck is styled in the classic BB profile for maximum efficiency and style.
