Cort Adds B4 Plus AS RM Bass to Artisan Series

Cort Guitars B4 Plus AS RM Bass Body

Adding to their Artisan series of basses, Cort has unveiled the B4 Plus AS RM, a four-string that incorporates four tonal woods. That includes swamp ash for the body, panga panga and walnut for the neck, and roasted maple for the fretboard.

“Cort’s latest material innovation in the Artisan Series is seen and heard through the ‘RM’ roasted maple fingerboard on the B4-Plus AS RM,” they write. “The maple has been treated in an oxygen-free oven at a high temperature, stabilizing the wood for a bigger, bolder tone while also developing its golden-brown look for vintage appeal.”

For electronics, Cort opted for a pair of Bartolini MK-1 pickups, which they describe as being “punchy [with] warm mids,” and a Markbass MB-1 EQ. Other features include Hipshot Ultralite tuners and an EB12 bridge.

The Cort Guitars B4 Plus AS RM comes in three finishes: Open Pore Aqua Blue, Open Pore Trans Black, and Open Pore Burgundy Red. It will be available soon for $749.99.
