Four Striking New Bubinga Beauties Join the Vintage BassStable -

The Bubinga Series compromises of four Trev Wilkinson-designedmodels, all featuring his highly regarded pickups and hardware, andbuilt to handle playing all the way from bedroom to festivalstages.

First up is the passive Vintage V8004B (£299 UK RRP) which hasan eastern poplar body with 6mm Bubinga top, a bolt-on hard mapleneck and rosewood fingerboard. A pair of authentically voiced splitWilkinson WBP pickups are matched with a WBJ at the bridgeposition, giving you a full spectrum of classic bass guitar soundsvia dedicated tone and volume controls. Wilkinson designed the WBBCand WJB650 bridge and machineheads to ensure perfect intonation andtuning stability. The Vintage V9004B (£399 UK RRP) features thesame basic spec as the V80004B, but with the added appeal of activeelectronics, and a 5-piece laminated bolt-on neck of maple andnato.

Next in the series is the V10004B (£499 UK RRP). With its5-piece laminated maple/nato through neck design, a beautifulBubinga top on a mahogany body, plus a pair of high outputWilkinson designed MWJH4 active humbucking pickups, the V10004B istruly a force to be reckoned with spec-wise and more than able tohold its own in any situation. For five-string aficionados, theV10005B (£519 UK RRP) has the same spec as its four-string brother,but with a low B string for those room-rattling low notes.
