Woofer Pickup Design

A specially designed double humbucker pickup is installed at the neck positioning, which generated a thick and dominant low-end tone, perfect for punchy bass riffs and different playing styles. The versatile front humbucker is wired through a push-pull high-cut circuit, giving you the ability to choose between the standard ‘Attitude’ neck pickup tone or a bass-orientated ultra-low vintage sound.

Alder Body & Rosewood Fretboard

The BB714’s body is constructed from Alder, a highly popular choice of wood for bass production, producing a smooth and deep tone, whilst remaining lightweight and highly durable.
