Expression F.P. Custom 5 String Bass

This is an Expression Single Cut model bass which has been customised for wood choices, pickup placement and control layout. Another important feature specified by the client was to keep the weight as low as possible. Woods, other materials and construction method were maximised to deliver on weight without compromising the basses sonic qualities – attack, clarity and sustain.
