Elrick NJS 4 5-String Electric Bass With Case, White

List Price: $2,595.00


20 years ago, Cort® joined forces together with world-renowned luthier Rob Elrick of the Elrick Bass Guitars® and developed a Cort® version of ‘Elrick e-volution Bass’ that gained popularity among serious bass players. Now for its 30th anniversary year, Elrick Bass Guitars® has partnered again with Cort® to release the new Cort® Elrick NJS basses. The NJS, short for New Jazz Standard, are modern j-bass styled basses with unique features such as angled headstock and 24 frets with zero fret, a “heel-less” body design with extended treble access, and Voiced Tone VTB-ST pickups with Bartolini® preamp. Loved by many aspiring and experienced bass players alike throughout the years, the innovative design and superb playability of the NJS basses is sure to satisfy high-end bass aficionados. Alder Body The Alder body provides a perfectly balanced tone while giving a slight boost on high mid range. It's one of the most ideal tonewoods for solid body basses of major bass makers since the 1950's. Voiced Tone VTB-ST Pickups The new Voiced Tone VTB-ST single-coil pickups perfectly complement the big robust sound of the bass with modern clarity, transparency and vintage warmth while eliminating noise with its hum canceling design. Special Bartolini® Preamp The same specially designed Bartolini® preamp that are installed on the US made original Elrick NJS basses are equipped, featuring 3-band EQ, 2-way push/pull mid select, and push / pull active bypass for a variety of tone combinations and manipulations. MetalCraft M Bridge The solid, high-mass MetalCraft M bridge was developed with more focus on ease-of-use and greater tone transfer. Specially adjusted for Elrick NJS, the bridge offers string loading from the back of the bridge for easier operation as well as greater tuning stability and focused sound.
