"My Crafter bass has toured the world with me... killer bass, onstage or off"
Chuck Garric • The Alice Cooper Band

Combining a solid, natural acoustic feel with a superbly rich tonal palette, the Crafter BA400 Electro Acoustic Bass is a great value for money instrument that looks and plays as though it should cost a hell of a lot more.

Built for the long haul, the cutaway body features an Engelmann Spruce top which delivers a mature "played-in" sound with back and sides from crosscut Ash providing a striking visual counterpoint.

All Crafter BA400 Basses feature the L.R. Baggs Element under-saddle pickup, which boasts impressive body sensitivity, articulation and feedback resistance (as well as one of the most dynamic ranges of any acoustic instrument pickup). Matched with an onboard Crafter LR-T iX Pro Preamp these superb instruments produce a punchy, full range amplified sound, with plenty of versatility for performers from any genre.

L.R. Baggs Element Pickup

Unlike typical under-saddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup is a flexible film sensor (only 2 thousandths of an inch thick) that picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances.

Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses “quack” caused by compression and unlocks the Element’s unrivaled dynamic range.

The pickup’s minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate, transparent coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
