Product Description & Reviews
The Custom Collection element 4 bass guitar was designed for players who prefer a modernized take on a classic. The basic body lines might look familiar, but with enhanced comfort and playability. The stunning Burl top is accented with black hardware. What makes this bass special is far deeper than the striking appearance? We carefully selected each detail and spec to deliver a great bass for stage or studio.The impact of a bridge on the performance of a bass guitar is something that people too often underestimate. In fact, the bridge is key to many aspects of tone and we gave it the full respect that it deserved. We used a solid molded bridge with tight slots for each fully-adjustable saddle, a big enhancement on its own. Then we took that even further by including an aluminum tone block below the bridge. The hidden block adds increased sustain and attack. Since it is aluminum, it does not add weight to the bass, but has a similar sonic impact to using a heavy bridge. We call this bridge-and-internal-block combination the MK Stealth Attack Bridge System.The pickups, controls, and electronics are another area where we did extensive testing and enhancements to get a great result. The pickups were developed specifically for the MK Element bass line by Rockfield and they have an over-wound classic pickup sonic performance. We blend that with our newly-developed Element Active Circuit that has been carefully tweaked to provide a modern sonic profile.Also key to our design was allowing excellent user customization potential using the onboard controls. Those controls include offering you a stacked tone pot with separate treble and bass controls. There is also a blend via a blend knob to sweep from one pickup to the other or varying degrees of each. Also included is a bypass switch allowing you to go from active to a very vintage passive tone with a quick click.Finally, to add to the comfort of this bass we built it using Red Cedar. This wood from the mahogany family is a great tonewood that allowed us to deliver the powerful sound that we were committed to. It is a lighter weight wood which reduces the overall instrument weight. This was something that had been requested by players and the careful combination of the woods and other design aspects makes the Custom Collection Element bass especially comfortable to play.SPECIFICATIONSTop: BurlBody: Red CedarConstruction: bolt-onNeck: Rock Maple with comfort neckjoint shaped for added accessFretboard: RosewoodFretboard Radius: 9.5 in / 241 mmNumber of Frets: 21Inlays: Gray dotsHeadstock: MK 2+2 straight string-pullScale Length: 34”Truss Rod Type: Double adjustableNut Material: BoneNut Width: 1.63 in/ 41.40mmBoutique Mod: Full control mod - master volume, pickup blend, stacked tone (bass tone and treble tone)Electronics: Element Active Circuit with passive bypass toggle switchNeck Pickup: Rockfield 4SW (voiced specifically for the Element bass)Bridge Pickup: Rockfield 4SW (voiced specifically for the Element bass)Hardware Finish: BlackTuning Keys: MK die castBridge Type: MK Stealth Attack Bridge System with internal aluminum bridge block for added sustain and tone
