USA Series 44-51
The 44-51 captures the rich and defined power of the early basses that revolutionized the four-string low-end world. The tone and power of a well-preserved vintage instrument with flawless Lakland fretwork and modern neck refinements like graphite reinforcement bars within a quarter-sawn maple neck make this another of our modern classics.
44-51 Standard – The 51’s standard vintage style single coil pickup, “slab” style body and standard 1.6” nut width (with just a bit more front to back girth), faithfully recreates the vintage shape and feel.
The 44-51M model adds more contemporary features like forearm and body contours and our popular neo-punch split coil hum canceling pickup. Other options for both models include:
- Choice of Swamp Ash or Alder body wood
- Available Mother of Pearl, Abalone or Ebony block inlays
- Available white or black neck binding
- Available matching headstock color on most finishes
- Choice of 1.6″ vintage neck taper, 1.5″ “J” neck taper, or 1.75″ ’60’s’ style neck taper
- Available fretless version with choice of lined or unlined Ebony
- Available Hipshot D-Extender
All USA Series instruments include a hard shell case.
