RRP £649.00


A fabulous, versatile workhorse that stands up to everything a bass player can throw at it, the Perception lays the foundation for a great groove.

Built with a two-piece centre-jointed American alder body, Canadian hard rock maple neck, the Perception is traditional in feel yet contemporary in execution.

With a sleek neck profile, full width fingerboard, positive feel, enhanced upper fret access and extended neck join, the Perception responds fluidly to your style and demands to be played.
The pickups, specially created for the Perception, emulate the very best of classic vintage tone, with bell-like clarity, depth and power to spare.

Notice too, the brass barrel saddles, which contribute so much to the positive tone of the Perception, fitted to a simple, stamped tempered steel base plate designed to transmit all that string energy to the body for maximum tone.

The Perception captures the solid, precise tonality that underpins so much music, and demonstrates just how versatile a passive bass can be. Available in four and five string versions, this is a 'go-to' bass that players the world over will really appreciate.
