Bass of the Week: Fad Guitars Corona P50

Fad Guitars Corona P50 BassThis week we’re checking out the Corona P50 by Indonesia’s Fad Guitars. Despite its name, the bass was introduced last year as their first-ever hollow body bass.

It has an interesting wood combination that utilizes jackfruit back and sides with a mahogany top. Its maple neck sports a vintage “C” shape and a rosewood fingerboard with 21 frets. Finished in a “licorice” color, the bass gets some extra elegance with a gold/copper colored pickguard, hardware, and finger rest.

For electronics, the company opted for a single Seymour Duncan Antiquity 50 P pickup with passive electronics. The tone control has a push-pull function to double as a kill switch. Finally, the hardware includes a Badass II bridge and Hipshot HB2 tuners.
