Product Description
Introducing the CV Series, a Vintage/Modern Rock n' Roll design using the C bass shape with a flat top, a vintage radius, and Elbow/Waist contours. Versatility was the fundamental goal in design. With basses, tone can cross over into any genre as long as your instrument has the versatility, and this bass does! The 3-Way Series-Split-Parallel switch for each pickup allows you to change your CV into 3 different sounding basses, then use the blend to get more tones. Also, simplicity was a factor. Master Volume, Master Tone, and a 3-Way Toggle let's you get to the point quick without fussing around with active EQ's. Dial in the pickup position and you're off!
Reviews From Buyers
I can't think of any way to describe it tonally other than two jazz basses mashed together, with the option to turn one off or turn both on into a series or parallel beast. That's what this bass sounds like tonally, which somehow the double jazz pickup that was in the american series P basses couldn't even seem to perfectly emulate. It's a very impressive sound and the series/single/parallel switch attached to them is where this bass seems almost magical in managing to sound like 3 different basses in one. Going to have to split this section into three to describe it better. Series mode: very much like those double jazz pickups mentioned earlier that are in early 00s american series P basses and certain discontinued warwick models. Single Coil mode: put the pickup selector in the middle and you have a jazz bass plain and simple. That's pretty much the best way to describe this sound. Parallel mode: The final setup provides a very unique sound that lends itself very well to the genre I play. It's a midrange scooped sound that still retains plenty of high and low mid definition and manages to cut very well without sounding muddy like series bass humbuckers can tend to do. The best comparison I can think of for the parallel setup on the BRIDGE pickup is somewhat close to a Warwick Thumb bass with it's very aggressive percussive tone, but instead of a low mid focus it's very high mid heavy. The neck pickup in parallel is it's own sound that I've never heard out of a bass before, and is great for smooth runs and calm basslines. That being said, this bass manages to be the most dynamic bass I've ever played tonally, without a single battery powering it. Very impressive especially considering what you're paying for it.
