Gecko 5 String Bass Body Features

This body features an extended upper horn for perfect balance with playing with a strap and a small lower horn to catch your thigh when playing seated. The deep heel-less extended neck joint gives superb access to all 24 frets. The neck bolts are laid out in an asymmetrical pattern for maximum stability and sustain, they are secured in the body with custom recessed steel washers.

The well-designed rear-access control cavity features a built-in compartment for up to two batteries as well as plenty of room for controls and a custom recessed area for neat installation of an active preamp. Precisely crafted in every detail, the cavity cover even screws on with machine screws and threaded brass inserts that won’t strip out.

Two Pickup Routing Options

The Gecko works well as a One or Two pickup bass as seen below. Choose the pickup routing to match your tone needs and playing style. Two pickups offer broad frequency response and a wider variety of tones, while a single pickup can deliver a more focused midrange sound and leave more room to dig in under the strings.

Each image below shows the pickup routing and lists the type of pickup that routing can accommodate.

* Pickup routing options available but not shown below are the 6-string ASB2-6 (P4) & ASB-6 (EMG45).
