Form Factor Audio Wombat 5 Short Scale (30”) Electric Bass Guitar Burgundy Ash, 100% Brushed Satin Nitro
Form Factor Audio Wombat JS5 5-String Short scale 30″ Bass Burgundy Ash The harder the wood, the greater the string tension and this bass is made of Hard North European Swamp Ash. The quarter sawn Ash neck is stiffer than plain sawn, and will also affect string tension. This is exactly why the Low B 5th string on this bass sounds better than on most 35″ scale basses.
Form Factor Audio are the kings of tone and have loaded this short-monster bass with amazing modern parts and electronics:
DUAL TRUSS ROD SYSTEM: All Form Factor instruments utilize Dual Truss Rods made from Titanium to maintain neck stiffness, stability and reduce weight. There are a lot of basses on the market with a tendency to have weak neck binding structures due to high string tensions. For this reason, two Titanium rods are applied to all bass guitars. All WOMBAT basses utilize “Easy Wheel” Dual truss rod adjustment system made from Titanium to maintain neck stiffness, stability and reduce weight.
TUSQ NUT: The nut is one of the most important parts of the bass that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material, the nut can either improve or degrade the sound. Although the TUSQ nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tones than brass, corian or other materials.
ACCURATE AND STABLE TUNING: Each bass comes with Hipshot UltraLite tuners. Developed with accurate gear ratios, the machine heads are very reliable in tuning.
ELECTRONICS: High-quality premium Bass Pickups by High-end Bartolini pickup builder and with Bartolini electronics.
