You want power and tone? The new RB Series basses were built for you. The RB-Z5W is a fretted five string model. (Also available is the RB-ZW4 four string fretted.) Two active Soapbar Pickups with a coil tap start the package. Add the built-in preamp and you are ready to rock! Complete tone and balance control is necessary to get just the right sound, and the RB Series has just what it takes. It features a volume control, a pan control, coil tap switch, and active Bass, Middle, and Treble controls to allow you to dial in just the sound you need for any type of music. The beautiful natural gloss Zebrawood top sits atop a Mahogany body for an eye-catching bass that will grab everyone's attention. The Rosewood fingerboard is mounted to a Maple neck with a 15.75 degree radius for fast easy action. The scale length is 34" and the neck thickness is 22mm at the first fret and 23.5mm at the 12th fret. The die cast black chrome bridge and tuning gears complete the package. All of these features and good looks at a price that is hard to believe. It's the new bass everyone is talking about. Play one and you will see why!
