This is what Cort have to say:
The Cort Artisan A4 Custom SP is a pro-level 4-string active bass guitar, loaded with a host of premium features, making it perfect for the stage or studio.
With its mahogany body, topped and backed with spalted maple, the Cort Artisan A4 Custom just oozes class.
The neck thru design (maple and wenge construction) will improve sustain and fundamental tone whilst still maintaining good amounts of snap.
A rosewood fingerboard is set with 24 large frets and inlaid with Abalone dot with black circle inlays.
Tonal versatility is certainly the order of the day with the Artisan A4 Custom.
Loaded with a Bartolini pickup and active 3-band EQ section you’ll have easy access to an array of tones – from some old school thump, to mid heavy rock tones to classic mid-scooped slap tones.
The A4-Custom’s Hipshot bridge features sturdy construction. Its steel saddles secured to the main assembly provide superb string-to-instrument sonic transmission for punchy, long sustaining tone.
