More info

Designed to Larry Hartke's specifications the XK-5 represents an accessibly priced 5-string option for professional bassists. This precision instrument features a Poplar body coupled to a Vaccaro double T-Bar aluminum component neck system with a rock maple neck shell that provides a familiar feel and easy playability. This unique neck system consists of a lightweight aluminum aircraft extrusion welded to an aluminum triple-plated chrome headstock. It not only ensures maximum resistance to atmospheric conditions and string tension; it provides exceptionally long sustain and tuning stability over the long run. A Rosewood fretboard with ultra-fast action neck finish and Nickel-Silver frets further enhance playability while the XK-5's Zero-fret design provides flawless open string response. To best capture its extraordinary sustain, tone and presence, the XK-5 is equipped with high performance passive pickups and active electronics. Other features include dual volume controls; concentric bass/treble tone controls; a chrome bridge and tuning machines and a brushed aluminum finish pickguard.
