I was first invited to try a Vintage V4, I was taken
by its expensive look and feel. To discover its extremely
reasonable price was a bonus. For a new bass player
to own a quality instrument from the word go is inspiring.
After trying it out during a Big Country rehearsal for
the last tour, I quickly decided it would tour with
me. To have a signature model to my live bass spec is
an honour!” Tony Butler – Big Country

you have a taste for something different but at the
same time so well known, this is your bass.
Now you can get the true flavour of those famous bass
lines from one of the most distinctive jazz rock bass
players ever – check the fretless neck with the
fret lines and dot markers still visible; no scratchplate
but with the screw holes still open, and only the chrome
control panel plate left; oooh... that patterned scarring...
keep an eye on the weather!
V74 is great value for money and should be one to check
‘The V74 has pre-drilled holes for a scratchplate
although one isn’t present – a nice touch,
that lends the bass that powerful ‘Jaco’
