Xotic Introduces XP-1T 5-String Bass

Taking a cue from classic design, Xotic will be introducing the XP-1T 5-string bass at NAMM. The P-bass styled instrument debuts the newly designed PV-1 pickup, but also borrows from their XJ-1T by utilizing the Tri-Logic Bass Preamp. The preamp includes a 3-band EQ with toggle switches to adjust the mid and treble-frequencies as well as a pre-set gain control for boosting up to three times.

Xotic XP-1T Electrum Metallic

Though the XP-1T’s medium-weight alder body is based on an original P-bass design, Xotic modified it by rounding the heel of the neck joint and the cutaway for easier playing in higher positions. The maple neck sports a “C” shape and a rosewood fingerboard with a 10″ radius.

Xotic XP-1T 3-Color Sunburst

Hardware includes Hipshot Ultralite tuners and a Hipshot A style bridge.

The Xotic XP-1T will be available in two finishes: 3-tone Burst and Electrum Metallic. It will become available after the NAMM show, and will carry a price tag of $3,300. For more info, visit the Xotic website.
