Fretless acoustic-electric bass with two-voice pickup system and simple controls.

The redesigned A5 Ultra Natural Fretless Semi-Acoustic Bass remains true to Godin's high-quality build and design innovation standards. The semi-acoustic A5 bass is outfitted with a two-chambered Canadian Laurentian Basswood body, Solid Spruce top, Hard Rock Maple neck and Richlite fingerboard. The A5 is also equipped with a top-mounted thumb rest to ensure a comfortable playing position. What sets the A5 apart is its two-voice pickup system and on-board controls that allow players to choose between the low-profile Lace Sensor magnetic pickup for a modern and dynamic sound, or the individual L.R. Baggs saddle transducers in the bridge that offer an authentic acoustic double bass sound. The magnetics are controlled by volume and tone knobs mounted on the side of the body, with the L.R. Baggs saddle transducers being controlled by a custom-designed top-mounted preamp. These ergonomic sliders allow you to adjust volume, treble, mid and bass EQ to give your tone more warmth. There is also a 'Fat switch' selector to provide a mid-low boost, which reinforces the presence. The A5 bass offers two individual output jacks as well as a combined ‘mix’ output for added versatility. Order the A5 Ultra Fretless acoustic-electric bass today.
