Manufacturer's Description

A4 Ultra Ash

Designed with serious bassists in mind, the new approach of adding ash top on a mahogany body ensures a great balance of warm yet full and punchy sounding lows and bright yet clear and transparent highs, not to mention ash’s beautiful wood grain for more a natural aesthetic. The newly developed Fishman Fluence Bass Soapbar pickups and its 2-band EQ will surely satisfy any hard-rocking modern bassist with its multi-voiced capabilities for a wide range of genres.

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 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 30% weight reduction over other regular tuners and which results in improved balance and tuning accuracy.
