Ash Top on Mahogany Body

Ash top on a mahogany body ensures a great balance of warm yet full and punchy sounding lows and bright, clear and transparent highs, not to mention ash€„¢s beautiful wood grain for more a natural aesthetic.

Fishman Fluence Bass Soapbar

Based on Fishman€„¢s convention-disrupting Fluence Core technology, the new pickups for bass bring the revolutionary multi-voice performance, dynamic range, and articulation of Fluence technology to 4-string and 5-string bassists. The three voices for the Fluence Soapbar were created to offer players a wide palette of sounds that cover all playing styles.

1 Volume, 1 Blend, 2 Band EQ - 3 Way Voice Control Toggle Switch

A4 Ultra Ash€„¢s versatility is maximized by the push/pull mode on the volume knob and the dedicated 3-way mini switch for multi-voice control that enables perfect tones for a wide range of genres.

3 Way Voice Control Switch

Voice 1 (Passive): Classic, fat and round.


Voice 2 (Active): Full frequency, full dynamics.


Voice 3 (Active with mid contour): Funk, Hi-Fi scooped.


The push/pull pot for volume/coil-split engages single-coil mode when pulled for the same voices above but with Jazz Bass string window.

Hipshot TransTone Bridge

The string-thru-body and top-load construction facilitates greater tonal range while adding punch and enhancing sustain, perfectly complementing the longer 34€� scale€„¢s tighter string tension and focused sound.

5pcs Maple & Panga Panga Neck

The strength and brightness of Maple is ideally balanced with the warm midrange of Panga Panga, resulting in superb playability, feel and tonal definition.

Neck-Thru Body Construction

When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats neck-thru-body construction. The strings vibrate across the body and neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low-end with rich mids and singing highs.

Panga Panga Fingerboard

An African hardwood, Panga Panga has characteristics of Wenge and produces a tight and coherent sound that mates extremely well with the instrument€„¢s multi-laminate neck-thru-body construction.

Hipshot Ultralite Machineheads

A4 Ultra Ash is equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners (classic 20:1 tuning ratio) that is made of cast zinc with aluminum strings posts and mounting nuts, resulting in a 30% weight reduction over other regular tuners and which results in improved balance and tuning accuracy.
