Vintage Reissued V96 4-String Active Bass Guitar - Sunset Sunburst

The combination of a chunky Wilkinson double coil bass pickup and powerful 3-band onboard EQ, controlled by active bass, mid and treble rotaries, takes the sound of the Vintage V96 active basses from smooth and mellow traditional bass guitar tones all the way to super-funky contemporary grooves.

Vintage Reissued V96 4-String Active Bass Guitar - Sunset Sunburst

Description

The Vintage V96 Active Bass signifies the whole concept of a well made 4 string bass guitar, offering exceptional playability and a full dynamic tonal range.

Eastern poplar is the ideal tone wood for the lightweight body, highly resonant, vibrant and capable of producing big muscle bound overtones and harmonic content with exceptional depth, warmth and with natural high end clarity.

Indeed the V96 is a beefy bass guitar in all departments, and looks cool to say the least, available in a choice of Black, Sunset Sunburst or Natural finishes, with hard rock, bolt-on maple necks and fingerboards with contrasting black dot position markers. 

All hardware is chrome including smooth open-geared Wilkinson WJBL200 machine heads, a Wilkinson 4 saddle adjustable bridge and control plate featuring chrome control knobs.

Without doubt, the Vintage V96 is pretty to look at, but aesthetics aside, the heart of every instrument is its tone, it’s here that this stunning bass excels.

The sonic versatility of these beautifully crafted bass guitars is quite outstanding and, the Wilkinson double coil WSM4 pickup, is one of the many features that has made the Vintage V96 so popular with bass players around the world. 

This power house pickup with its immense grunt, monstrous, huge mid range punch and top end clarity, is installed in the bridge position where strings have less movement and naturally sound brighter. Needless to say then, that this bass guitar with its active circuitry featuring Volume, Bass, Middle and Treble controls, has the ability to effortlessly cut through any band or recording mix.

Whilst the Vintage V96 is renowned for delivering classic sounding rich lows and stabbing high frequencies, the 3-band EQ can be set for warm, rich tones, again, highlighting the tonal option within this extremely versatile bass guitar. 

Funk, rock, disco or pop, the V96 is a winner…and some. Play on.
