Artist AMSB5 Black 5 String Multiscale Bass Guitar

This latest addition to the Artist Headless range is certainly an eye-catcher! With a classy gloss-black finish, the AMSB5 is a mean-looking low-end machine. The bigger brother to the Artist AMB4, the ASMB5 features a 24-fret multiscale Purple Heart Fretboard over a Roasted Canadian Maple Neck. With a matte finish ensuring smooth runs up and down the fretboard, there will be nothing standing between you and lightning-fast runs, though the skill to perform them is unfortunately not included.

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 AMSB5 are also considerably lighter... who knew the headstock made such a difference? This is further improved by the incredibly lightweight poplar body.

 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.

AMSB5 5 string bass

By: on 3 January 2024
This bass is great value for money and very playable just as it is. I already have several basses from Artist guitars and they are all well constructed. I do tend to upgrade the electronics in these instruments because I choose to and not because they don't already play well. Its just a personal choice. I can't recommend there gear and range enough.
