This product is not currently available.


    Product Description

    The Arc is the product of an exciting collaboration between Ashdown and highly skilled luthier, Dan Lakin. These co-designed instruments combine Dan's knowledge and know-how, with Ashdown's engineering expertise. It's just one in a range of innovative new bass guitars created by the duo. 

    Classic Inspiration 

    Taking notes from the iconic P-Bass style, The Arc provides a fresh take on the legendary design. They've been designed to thrive in any musical scenario - from your house, to the studio, practice room and stage. They're reliable, no matter how you intend to use them. 

    Durable & Stylish

    The Arc was built using some of the finest components available. Every element of this bass' construction was carefully considered at each stage of the manufacturing process. Wilkinson bridges, Hipshot tuners and other professional-grade features contribute to an instrument that'll be with you for years to come. 

    Crafted from a lightweight alder, the bass remains comfortable to use, even during extended playing sessions. It's complimented by a smooth maple neck. This sits nicely in your hand, allowing you to move smoothly along it, even during intense bouts of any performance. It's augmented by a fingerboard of the same wood that's built for precision. The sound is then delivered via a single P-style split humbucker.
