Glide in and out of notes, creating basslines that sing with a unique timbre, blurring the lines between rock and jazz. The Vintage V74MRJP is ideal for those players who operate on the fringes, for whom musical expression is everything; slide whole chords up and down the neck, decorate your bass lines with false harmonics and fretless vibrato – this bass is ready to accompany you right to the very edge.
The Vintage V74MRJP ICON bass replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that exhibits a lifetime’s worth of woodshedding, rehearsing and performing, straight out of the box. Good things come to those who wait – but who has the time for that?
A Vintage ICON Series Bass already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is your journey is just beginning. Play on.
