Artisan Bass Works has introduced the Fidelity Series of basses, which they describe as the pinnacle of five years of development and testing. Featuring their ANSIR angled neck technology, the Fidelity series is available in several configurations with the main version being the Fidelity Maple.
The Fidelity Maple comes with a figured maple bookmatched top and walnut stringer over a 3-piece alder body. Its neck is roasted maple matched with an ebony fretboard. Each Fidelity bass includes a pair of Seymour Duncan Jazz SJB pickups and an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp. Artisan says the combination provides for “deep lows, articulate midrange, and sweet treble response.”
The Artisan Bass Works Fidelity Bass is available in four or five-string versions with direct prices starting at $1,999.
