Subtly radical -  It's our take on the popular Jazz bass recipe. It's tough to improve on the venerable J bass, but the result is a much more versatile, comfortable and playable bass. It features:

- the fattest and most well-defined sounding B and E strings on the planet - the reversed headstock makes the B and E strings the longest, and tightest-sounding of any bass. Why go to a 35 inch scale to get tight, focused B tone? 

- a shorter 32 inch fretboard for increased speed and playabilty and ZERO neck dive 

- more offset body than a Fender Jazz Bass. It's more comfortable to play, and we think it looks even cooler.

- John East 3 band active boost and cut electronics with sweepable mid controls let you dial your bass into any room or setting.

- M&V Atlas P style and Supertone J style pickups in the P and J bass locations yield all the classic sounds plus a lot more.

- slim shallow C asymmetric neck profile and 1.5 inch nut on the five string version is super comfortable.
