    Loaded with a pair of Bartolini BH2 Pickups and with a plethora of EQ tweaking options on board, the EHB1265MS-NML will do anything from funk, to metal without breaking a sweat!

    Key Features

    • Ergonomic Body Design - The EHB’s headless construction and specially designed body enable the player to maintain a similar playing position whether seated or standing.
    • Slanted Body Back - The top half of the back of the body is slanted which allows the bass to rest slightly closer to the player’s body for better control and a more ergonomic feel.
    • Chambered, Rounded Edge Body - Its contoured, ergonomic design and chambered body make for a lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable instrument that’s excellent for long sets or practice session.
    • Scooped Cut on Body Back - There is extra carving on the back of the body behind the lower horn for easier upper fret access.
    • 9pc Panga Panga/Walnut Neck w/Graphite Reinforcement Rods - Provides superior note attack, tight lows and increased sustain.
    • Luminescent Side Dot Inlays - Provides clear visibility in dark environments.
    • Bartolini® BH2 Pickups - Provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
    • Vari-Mid 3-Band EQ w/EQ Bypass Switch - Features a variable mid-frequency control which allows you to dial in an incredibly wide range of sounds. There is also an EQ bypass switch for passive operation with the treble control acting as a passive tone control when the EQ is bypassed.
    • MR5HS Mono Rail Bridge w/String Spacing Adjustable Saddles - Designed especially for the EHB basses and features wide intonation range. Each bridge piece is independently and securely attached to the body for maximum vibration transfer, and the saddles are adjustable for string spacing +/-1.5mm, answering every bassist’s individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. Teflon washers are used on each tuner for a smooth tuning action.

    Looks so good, sounds exceptional. Although I am an inexperienced learner the general feel of the bass makes me want to practise. It feels like part of me.

    Although the design of this bass may not appeal to the more traditional bass player, I'd urge everyone to try it out. It's light and well balanced with a chambered ash body and a walnut top, extremely tonally versatile, and very easy to play. The multi-scale design provides really consistent string tension across the neck, and the 35" scale B string has a resonance and clarity that makes it feel like an integral part of the bass, not just some kind of afterthought tacked on to a 4-string, as many 5-string basses can seem. Despite the extended scale, at fully 4" shorter than the other standard scale basses I own, it's extremely compact and will fit in most guitar bags, as well as car boots, overhead lockers etc. Last and not least, the standard of build, finish and hardware is astonishingly good for a bass that's priced at only a shade over £1000. 5 stars!
