Ernie Ball Music Man and Vulfpeck Announce Joe Dart Signature Bass
Vulfpeck’s Joe Dart has a new signature bass by Ernie Ball Music Man. The Joe Dart Bass is initially limited to 50 units and will only be on sale during the month of March.
The bass features a Classic Sterling ash body with a natural satin finish, a flamed maple neck, and a figured maple fingerboard. Its pickup is a special custom passive MM humbucker designed in collaboration with Dart and his bandmate Jack Stratton.
The musicians also harp on its simplicity and the fact that it has only a volume knob in this release video:
Each of the first run of basses will have “First 50” engraved on the backplate. It’s available for order only on Vulfpeck.com for $1,999.
