The MKIV bass is a combination of the MKI lower cutaway and arm bevel with a dash of iconic solid body basses sprinkled throughout the specs. A long upper horn gives the player a balanced feel of the body while the lower access gives the player a full range or motion. The flame maple top and pickguard are carried into the neck with a paddle-constructed torrefied maple neck back and your choice of fretboard. The natural satin oil finish gives the player a "worn-in" and natural feel neck while the body's figure pops.  

The controls come standard with a 3 way toggle, 2 vol 2 tone with stock J-style pickups.  If you would like the controls changed to your liking please feel free to inquire.

The neck profile of the MKIV Bass has a C profile with 20 mm @1st fret tapering to 21mm@ 12th making it a bit slimmer than a the MKII.

 The MKIV has a 2x2 headstock with mini Y tuners, hardtail bridge, Tusq nut and CTS pots make for a deadly cocktail of quality hardware and electronics.
