Custom V3 Pickups
A ceramic magnet pickup that delivers a clean, well-defined sound.
The new BB models are equipped with one tone control and two volume control knobs, for versatile sound shaping.
New Neck Shape
The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players.
Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
