Cort A5 Beyond Single Cut Bubinga
The A5 Beyond is the realization of Cort’s bold vision on innovative modern bass concepts. The new A5 Beyond features single-cutaway body design for enhanced body-neck balance and 35.5”-34” multi-scale frets for superb playability and focused lower register tones. Newly added to A5 Beyond is the beautiful Bubinga top that boasts lush reddish colour and deep sustain with warm even notes and bright midrange tone that complements the solid sounding Ash body. The result is a state-of-the-art bass for the most discriminating musician.
The single cutaway body shape improves the body-neck balance and longer sustain while adding comfort and providing unfettered access to the high frets. The multi-scale produces more tension for the low strings, resulting in a tighter and more focused lower register sounds.
Classic body tonewood Ash is combined with reddish bronze-like Bubinga top to strike an ideal balance between the traditional and the modern - both in looks and in sound.
The trademark Bartolini® sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing outstanding sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.
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.
A5 Beyond is equipped with Hipshot® Ultralite machine heads (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.
