Bass Collection Artist

Michael Dagnall, bassist with Dante Fox, Vega, Max Bacon, Hope & Glory and now UK melodic hard rockers Iconic Eye at Liverpool's World famous Cavern Club with his Bass Collection Jive Five

A New Modern Classic from The Bass Centre.

"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 vintage sounds with a strikingly cool, contemporary look and enhanced, active tonal versatility.

Taking its cue from the hugely successful Bass Collection Jive Bass, the 5 string Jive Five sports a new, light, weight body contour and super-fast, satin finish neck alongside a wealth of additional modern flourishes... 21 fret ebony fingerboard, lush, figured ash body with contrasting ash-veneered pickguard, twin band active EQ and a hi-mass, hi-sustain bridge system.

  • Figured ash body
  • Grained, ash veneer pickguard
  • Satin finish, "Super Slim 60's" neck profile
  • Vintage spec, exposed-pole, single-coil pickups
  • 2-band, 9 volt active EQ

With authentic tone, superb build quality, flawless finish & expert set-up, the Jive Five is an affordable, pro-grade instrument that perfectly blends classic and modern stylings.
