With some bass amps equipped with gain control, high gain settings can be used to produce distortion in the tone. A dedicated battery compartment eliminates the need to open the controls cavity with tools for changing the battery.
The slim and easy to play maple neck is not painted so that years of playing will not wear-out the paint and your instrument will retain its attractive looks even after becoming road-worn.
