Cort A5 Ultra Ash 5 string

Crafted with the discerning bassist in mind, this innovative design incorporates an ash top on a mahogany body, delivering a harmonious blend of warm, robust, and punchy low tones, alongside bright, crisp, and transparent highs. Not to be overlooked is the exquisite wood grain of ash, enhancing its natural aesthetic appeal.

Introducing the newly engineered Fishman Fluence Bass Soapbar pickups, complete with a 2-band EQ, designed to satisfy the needs of today's rock-driven bassist. These pickups boast multi-voiced capabilities that span a wide spectrum of musical genres.

Ash Top on Mahogany Body: The ash top on a mahogany body provides an exceptional equilibrium, delivering warm and resonant lows, while ensuring the highs are vivid, clear, and transparent. The ash's captivating wood grain further enhances its organic allure.

Fishman® Fluence Bass Soapbar: Building on Fishman's groundbreaking Fluence Core technology, these new bass pickups bring forth the revolutionary multi-voice performance, dynamic range, and articulation that Fluence technology is renowned for, now tailored for both 4-string and 5-string bassists. The three distinct voices offered by the Fluence Soapbar cater to a wide array of playing styles.

1 Volume, 1 Blend, 2 Band EQ, 3 Way Voice Control Toggle Switch: The A5 Ultra Ash's versatility is maximized through a push/pull feature on the volume knob and a dedicated 3-way mini switch for multi-voice control, allowing for the creation of perfect tones across a diverse range of musical genres.

3 Way Voice Control Switch:

  • Voice 1 (Passive): Embracing a classic, rich, and rounded sound.
  • Voice 2 (Active): Delivering a full-frequency spectrum with dynamic depth.
  • Voice 3 (Active with mid contour): Perfect for funk and Hi-Fi with a scooped midrange.

The push/pull pot for volume/coil-split engages single-coil mode when pulled, providing the same voices as above but with a Jazz Bass single coil tone.

Hipshot® TransTone Bridge: The combination of string-thru-body and top-load construction expands tonal range, amplifying punch and sustaining notes, complementing the tight string tension and focused sound of the 34" scale length.

5pcs Maple & Panga Panga Neck: The marriage of the strength and brightness of maple with the warm midrange of Panga Panga results in exceptional playability, feel, and tonal definition.

Neck-Thru Body Construction: For unparalleled punch and sustain, neck-thru-body construction is the ultimate choice. It ensures the strings vibrate across the body and neck coherently and linearly, maximizing low-end tightness with rich mids and soaring highs.

Panga Panga Fingerboard: This African hardwood, reminiscent of Wenge, produces a tight and unified sound that pairs seamlessly with the instrument's multi-laminate neck-thru-body construction.

Hipshot® Ultralite Machineheads: Equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners boasting a classic 20:1 tuning ratio, made of cast zinc with aluminum string posts and mounting nuts. These tuners reduce weight by 30% compared to regular tuners, enhancing balance and tuning precision.
