The Vintage® Coaster Series™ electric guitars and basses feature Vintage's renowned craftsmanship, exceptional playability, time tested hardware and sonic versatility that have indeed, earned the Vintage brand, enormous respect from musicians and the music media around the world.
With a stunning finish, 3-ply scratch plate, chrome hardware and black control knobs, the Vintage Coaster Series double cutaway V495 5 string electric bass guitar is a fine example.
With a solid paulownia body, a bolt-on maple neck, 20 fret maple fingerboard inlaid with block position markers, the V495 delivers tight, natural piano-like tones, with a fine balance of high, mid and low frequencies enhanced by a pair of Entwistle XJC single coil pickups.
The pickups themselves have been specifically designed for the V495 by none other than the legendary British guitar builder and designer Alan Entwistle.
Tech heads may like to know that the Entwistle pickups feature quality ceramic magnets, are wound with high grade copper wire and dipped in high viscosity wax to isolate and protect the coils from moisture, whilst reducing microphonic feedback issues.
For non-savvy tech head guitar players, just plug in and listen to the exceptional clarity and full range tonal response that’s perfect for all kinds of music, from country to blues, jazz to pop, rock and metal.
With super smooth, open-geared machine heads, a fully adjustable 5 string saddle bridge, intonation is accurate, precise and ensures tuning stability.
Whilst the Vintage Coaster Series V495 is an exciting choice as a first 'serious' 5 string rock bass guitar, for the ultimate sonic experience, this excellent model is also available in the Vintage Coaster Series Bass Guitar Pack, a complete self-contained outfit that’s fully equipped with everything required for aspiring guitar players of all ages, including Vintage branded plectrum, strap, carry bag, lead, clip-on chromatic tuner and a Kinsman 10 watt bass combo amplifier with Master Volume control, 3-band EQ and headphone socket for silent practicing.
