Artist AMB4 Chameleon Headless Bass Guitar w/ Active Pickups
This latest addition to the Artist Headless range is certainly an eye-catcher! With a chameleonic, sparkle finish, the AMB4 appears to change colour depending on lighting conditions, making for a bass guitar seemingly purpose-built for the stage.
The headless construction makes for a shortened string length, which leads to immensely improved tuning stability when compared with a traditional bass. This has the added benefit of ameliorating neck dive, an issue that has plagued bass players for far too long! Headless basses in the vein of the AMB4 are also considerably lighter... who knew the headstock made such a difference? This is further improved by the incredibly lightweight poplar body.
Sporting a matte-finished roasted Canadian maple neck and a long-grained purple heart fretboard, the AMB4 is a head turner from top to bottom (and it doesn't even need a head to do it!) With active pickups and a Belcat EQ-B3T active EQ, you'll be slapping and popping with the best of them, or sludging your way through the dark if that's more your speed.
