Ernie Ball Music Man Reintroduces Joe Dart Signature Bass
After unveiling a limited run of the instrument last year, Ernie Ball Music Man has brought back the Joe Dart Signature Bass. The Vulfpeck bassist’s axe is based on a Classic Sterling lightweight ash body with a natural finish, flamed maple neck, and a figured maple board.
Designed for simplicity, the bass has a single humbucker that’s custom wound with a ceramic magnet, parallel coils, and no phantom coil. It has passive electronics and only one control: an oversized volume knob.

You can also hear it in action during the band’s sold-out night at Madison Square Garden:
The Joe Dart Signature Bass is available for order for $1,999.
