Featuring two humbucking pickups that have being carefully positioned to ensure maximum tonal capability, the 4004CII Cheyenne II produces a thunderous bass tone with excellent definition and clarity.

''Well balanced and light in weight, the Cheyenne is an absolutely lovely instrument to play. It's comfortable, too, and without the restrictions of the classic hardware, this bass presents the ultimate in string access. But just how good does it sound without the presence of the classic large, old-style pickup?''
''Individually, both pickups offer a warm element to the tone, but with such wide spacing on the body that they have their own sound characteristics, too. But it's the blending of the two that really brings out the full potential of this bass, with sweet spots aplenty for a very funky playing experience.''
''Far more importantly, as far as most players are concerned, is that the setup on this review model is rather keen, with the strings set very low to fretboard - an important element in producing that legendary 'clanky' sound. In fact, it's exceptionally good here, and much easier to attain than on the classic models, where pickup blending was hampered by the big difference in output levels from the two pickups.''
