Cort Artisan A5 Plus FMMH 5-String Bass Guitar – Natural
The new A5 Plus SCMS is Cort’s bold foray into innovative modern bass concepts such as a single-cutaway for enhanced body-neck balance and multi-scale 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.

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 produces more tension for the low strings, resulting in a tighter and more focused lower register sounds.
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.
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.
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.
