You might know Ashdown for their amazing quality bass amps, but here's a new one for you: Ashdown bass guitars! The British brand have worked with skilled luthier Dan Lakin to create a kitted-out range of new creations, as well as a couple of firm favourite shapes.
The Saint shines a bright light on great P/J bass tone, blending vintage sound with stylish shape. This is all backed up by some truly outstanding hardware to make your playing experience as good as it gets.
Made using supreme lightweight alder and maple woods for the body and neck, the Saint is a joy to play thanks to a number of carefully thought-out features.
The neck is finished in a birchwood-casey Tru-Oil brand gun stock oil allowing your hand to slide seamlessly up and down the neck. Its 10-inch radius fretboard is on the vintage side of things and fills out the hand nicely.
Hardware on the Saint really stands to impress, with pro-grade Hipshot licensed tuners and a string-thrugh bridge keeping the tuning and intonation super stable.
P/J combination bass pickups are as versatile as they come; able to deliver heavy attack and silky smooth warmth in equal measure. The Saint is designed for tonal diversity and has the looks to slot in under any genre of music. The J bass bridge pickup has spades of projection and is ideal when the Saint is played finger style, in order to make up the lack of pick attack. Meanwhile, the P bass middle single coil offers the fatter, warmer notes, key to filling out any musical setting.
