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.
Available in a choice of Sunburst or Black, the solid alder body supports this classic bass guitar’s timeless design and natural resonance, effortlessly transmitting a fine balance of high, mid and low frequencies, delivered uncoloured to a pair of Wilkinson WOJB5 single coil pickups which enhance the tight, piano-like tone, with extended clarity and articulation.
Pair alder 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.
