Each Cornerstone Bass is painstakingly aged by hand to give the guitar a comfortable, broken-in feel right out of the included heavy-duty MONO case. Every bass is set up to perfection with a full fret level, dress and rolled fingerboard edges. As beautiful as this bass looks, it plays and sounds EVEN BETTER. Choose "LO" for a clear, classic P tone, or switch to "HI" for jaw-dropping thump! The 2-position HI - LO switch makes this an unbelievably versatile tone monster. This new, custom "THUMP circuit" is unlike anything else currently offered in the bass guitar world!
Finally, bass players can experience the versatility of tones guitarists have enjoyed for decades!
*Neck specifications may be customized by the customer to include variations in nut width, fingerboard radius, neck back carve, and fret type.
I play, and continue to "tweak" every completed instrument for a minimum of one week prior to sale to ensure superb playability for its new owner.
