Modern Vintage Guitars Five-String MVJ5-75 Bass Sunburst

Modern Vintage Guitars has expanded its lineup with the MVJ5-75, which is the company’s first five-string offering. Based on a ‘70s style, the bass comes in several configurations of colors and fingerboard choices.

“Modern Vintage instruments reach back into the classic guitar and bass designs but add improvements and updates that affect the usability of each guitar and bass without tampering with the formula of the sound, feel and look of the originals,” Modern Vintage says. “Each Modern Vintage instrument goes through a rigorous inspection and a unique hand adjustment to ensure the best possible playing set up.”

Each MVJ5-75 is built with an alder body and roasted maple neck with binding and block inlays. Modern Vintage offers an option of Indian rosewood or maple fingerboards. Their vintage voiced pickups are fitted to the body in the ‘70s spacing.

The Modern Vintage Guitars MVJ5-75 is available now directly for $2,199.

    It’s always about 5’ers. Bass has always been a 4 string instrument. I guess manufacturers can tack on an extra string and charge a lot more. That B string is practically useless. Nothing but mud.
