A Tribute To The Golden Age of Motor City Soul

Inspired by the wonderful, warm bass tones heard on countless classic sides from the unstoppable Tamla-Motown hit factory, The Bass Centre brings you The Bass Collection Detroit Bass.

A soulful little number, featuring a light-weight body design & The Bass Centre's "Super Slim 60's" neck profile, The Detroit sports a roller bridge assembly, vintage style split single-coil pickup and eye-catching, period-accurate finishes & pickguards. Chrome "ashtray" pickup and bridge covers complete the full-on, retro look whilst the factory fitted Elites Flatwound strings provide the Detroit with a rich, authentic tonal response and the ultimate, smooth playing experience.

Once you go "flat", you'll never look back!

If you want to capture Motown supremo, James Jamerson's smooth, melodic lines, this bass has got it all going on... but The Detroit's punchy, balanced and superbly defined sound is equally perfect for driving rhythm 'n' blues, rumbling punk funk, bass heavy trip-hop or ocean-deep dancehall grooves.

Converts to the joys of the Bass Centre's Detroit sound include The Happy Mondays' Paul Ryder and Graham Bush, with ska-pop veterans Madness.
