5 string bass

Yes, all 5 strings of this bass have the same punchy and/or smooth tone! (Unlike many factory 5-string instruments which have flappy toneless bottom B strings). The difference is due to the superior neck construction of the Rees instrument. This neck not only uses a double truss-rod, but also has two steel reinforcing side-bars within it. The result is a neck that is immune from unwanted parasitic resonances at the lowest frequencies.

The pickups have been carefully chosen to provide the widest variety of exceptional voices, together with the new original Rees circuitry. The bridge pickup is a vintage jazz bass type with a bright clear tone. The neck pickup is a quarter pounder jazz bass type which packs a heavier punch than a vintage type.
