VERSATILE — AUTHENTIC — AFFORDABLE

Of course there are no prizes for guessing the heritage of The Jive Bass - the offset body & twin single coil pickup arrangement are clearly part of bass history - but this is no run-of-the-mill, carbon copy clone.

Inspired by the wealth of experience that the Bass Centre has accumulated over its 30 years in business, as well as by our communication with professional players and customers all over the World, The Jive sports a number of unique features as well as The Bass Centre's own take on tradition. With a body profile that has had 4mm shaved from the familiar outline and The Bass Centre's satin finished "Super Slim Sixties" neck profile (significantly slimmer than the classic "C" shape), The Jive provides a lightweight, comfortable and super-fast playing experience.

Soundwise, The Jive truly delivers all you would want... and then some. The vintage style single coil pickups produce an authentic tone - glittering harmonics, clear, zingy highs & earthy, growling lows are all present & correct, with an even response and stacks of sustain and resonance thanks to the revolutionary Babicz Full Contact Bridge, which comes either as standard issue on selected models, or as an optional upgrade.

Of course, The Jive looks fantastic too, with a choice of flawlessly applied, period accurate finishes and authentic pickguards, with a cool, chrome pickup cover crowning an instrument that boasts superb build quality, awesome playability and a superb, versatile tonal range - all at a astonishingly good price.
