Praise For The Jive Bass

"If you're looking for the J-Bass look and are on a limited budget, these little gems have to be on your shopping list" • Guitar & Bass • July 2010

Praising the "eye-catching & vintage-correct" appointments and its "glittering highs (and) punch & crunchiness in the low end" Guitar & Bass Magazine awarded the Jive Bass an amazing 91% rating.

"Authentic sounds and excellent level of build quality"

Cameron Dawson with the superb soulful, groove based UK band, Mamas Gun LOVES his Bass Collection Jive...

"I was surprised by the brilliant playability of my Bass Collection instruments. They're light, with a classic vibe and a great sound."

"I really dig these basses!"

Cam is currently using 3 Bass Collection instruments - a Power Bass and a pair of fretted & fretless Jives - both live and in the studio.

Vintage Style. Authentic Tone. Classic Cool.

"These brilliant instruments are a steal at this price point... in fact it's hard to think of any bass range that offers so much quality for so little money" • Jazzwise Magazine


Inspired by a healthy obsession with vintage basses from the swinging 60's & informed by The Bass Centre's communication with professional players & customers throughout the World, a truly iconic design has been re-imagined to blend period accurate looks & a classic sound with a modern, light weight construction & a super fast, satin finish neck.

  • Vintage spec single-coil pickups
  • Classic colours & pickguards
  • Chrome pickup cover
  • "Super Slim 60's" neck profile
  • New, light weight, balanced body contour

In addition, the 2014 model Jive Bass features the Babicz Full Contact Hardware bridge as standard issue. Courtesy of its patented "eCam" Saddle technology, this unique design system adds considerable sustain to The jive's already rich sound as well as providing enhanced stability and precision adjustment to string height and intonation.

With its cool retro features, authentic tone, superb build quality, flawless finish & expert set-up, The Jive Bass is an affordable, pro-grade instrument that represents astonishing value for money & is genuinely regarded as being consistent with instruments three times the price.

"There's an attention to detail that is welcome, not only in the feel of the neck profile but also in that this instrument is nicely balanced and surprisingly light in weight. A very good bass for not a lot of money"
