Cort Artisan A5 Plus Open Pore Active Bass

For players that need a premium bass the Cort Artisan A5 Plus is an excellent choice. With high end features including Bartolini pickups and Hip Shot bridges that provide for better performance, the Cort A5 Plus is everything you need in a bass.

Figured Maple Top on Mahogany Body

Mahogany’s warm and emphasized low-midrange is complemented by the high-midrange and treble of 5-piece Maple & Panga Panga neck for a perfectly balanced and coherent sound. The Flame Maple top on the body adds a high-class upgraded look, plus also a touch of tonal definition.

Bartolini® MK-1 Pickups

The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.

Bartolini® MK-1 EQ

Bartolini’s renowned MK-1 preamp provides powerful yet transparent boost, along with its trademark crisp high-end. The MK-1 transfers the natural liveliness of the bass through a flexible 3-band equalizer for a variety of applications ranging from studio recording to large concert halls. It also provides a switchable active/passive mode for a powerful modern active sound or an organic traditional passive sound.

Neck-Thru Body Construction

When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats neck-thru-body construction. The strings vibrate across the body and neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low-end with rich mids and singing highs.

Hipshot® TransTone Bridge

The string-thru-body and top-load construction facilitates greater tonal range while adding punch and enhancing sustain, perfectly complementing the longer 34” scale’s tighter string tension and focused sound.

5pcs Maple & Panga Panga Neck

The strength and brightness of Maple is ideally balanced with the warm midrange of Panga Panga, so you get superb playability, feel and tonal definition.

Hipshot® Ultralite Machine Heads

The Artisan basses are equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners (classic 20:1 tuning ratio). Made of cast zinc with aluminum strings posts and mounting nuts, these tuners are 30% lighter than other regular tuners. This results in improved balance and also provides better tuning accuracy.
