Features We Love:

Ash Body

As a resonant tonewood, ash produces a lively sound with a tight low end and controlled high end. It's a key element behind the punchy tone of this bass, while the poplar burl top showcases its stunning grain to give the guitar truly premium appearance.

Bartolini Pickups

The Bartolini MK-1 soapbar pickups have been selected by Cort to fit around a wide range of playing styles, whether you're playing finger style, using a pick or slapping, or you work around all of the above, the A5 Plus SC has you covered so you don't need to keep switching guitars for different songs.

Bartolini MK-1 Preamp

Cort have selected the ML-1 Preamp by Bartolini for its powerful yet transparent tone that naturally boosts your signal and delivers a crisp high end clarity. Whether you choose to run the guitar in active or passive mode, the Bartolini 3-band EQ makes it easy to find the tone that works for you.
