Bass of the Week: Bootleg Guitars Jazz Box 4

Bootleg Guitars Jazz Box 4 Bass on table

This week we take a look at a new hollow-body creation from Bootleg Guitars called the Jazz Box 4. Finished in a beautiful translucent green, the bass features a body with maple for its top and back with a Spanish Cedar core. Its neck is a premium grade aged quartersawn Eastern hard rock maple topped with a rosewood fingerboard.

Luthier Jon Hill fits the bass with a pair of Bartolini BB4CBC dual coil humbucking pickups. For hardware he uses Hipshot tuners and a Tune-O-Matic bridge. Check out the cool trapeze tailpiece, too.
