Core series by the Xotic domestic manufacturing team. This series is made from wood and woodworking in the USA, painted and built in Japan. Since the frets are finished using a Plek machine with gives  smooth and balanced playability and intonation. The combination of ash body and maple neck and passive is classic jazz bass style. It achieves a well-balanced exquisite sound and playing feel even though it is a spec that makes you feel the jazz feel of 70's Fender. In particular, the sound of the 5th string is impressive and balanced. It sounds well without blurring. This model was released as the first of the Core series. It has the same specifications as the model used by Travis Carlton, a bassist active in the United States. It is a gem of attention not only for fans.
