Open Pore Natural B5 Plus AS OPN
The B5 Plus AS offers uncompromising quality for the discriminating musician with high value and performance. Featuring bolt-on construction for a warm open sound with great sonic dispersion, The B5 Plus AS is the modern bass with classic features and sound.

Bartolini MK-1 Pickups

The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.

B5 Plus AS Feature Markbass MB-1 EQ 

The Markbass MB-1 EQ provides a very natural and transparent boost that does not colour the organic nature or resonance of the instrument’s woods. The crystal clarity and natural warmth combined exude a passive feel with smooth lows, full-bodied mids, and bell-like highs. The Markbass 3-Band EQ brings out the best acoustic nature of the bass instrument.

B5 Plus AS Feature 5 Piece Wenge and Rosewood FB 

The emphasis of the Wenge and Rosewood combination is on tight and defined midrange that complements the bright and expansive tonal nature of the Swamp Ash body for an ideally balanced sound to round out the bass spectrum.

B5 Plus AS Feature Swamp Ash Body
A livelier and more resonant wood than poplar, swamp ash is characterised by a scooped-mids sound with a bigger low-end and clear highs for a more balanced tone. The open-pore finish enhances the resonance even further and the wood’s natural light weight and good-looking grain patterns are other positives of swamp ash. An ideal match for the Markbass 3-Band EQ system.

B5 Plus AS Feature Matching Headstock
The new matching headstock provides a tasteful and classy visual aesthetic for an ungraded high-end look and feel.

B5 Plus AS Feature Hipshot Ultralight Tuners
The Artisan B5 Plus AS features Hipshot Ultralight Tuners as standard equipment for tuning accuracy and stability.
