The A5 Plus FMMH is designed and built for the working musician who demands outstanding performance and rock-steady reliability, gig after gig. The neck-thru-body construction allows the strings to vibrate across the body and neck in a coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low end with rich mids and singing highs for long sustain. The power and clarity of the Maple neck is ideally balanced with the warm mid-range of the Panga Panga Panga fingertip, resulting in excellent playability, feel and tone definition. The mahogany body provides a warm and emphasized low and midrange that is complemented by the high-midrange and highs of 5-piece neck for a perfectly balanced and coherent tone. The Flame Maple top on the body adds a premium look and a touch of tonal definition.
The Bartolini MK-1 pickups deliver plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for an excellently balanced sound. Bartolini's preamp provides a powerful and transparent boost, along with its signature crisp high end. The MK-1 conveys the natural liveliness of the bass through a flexible 3-band equalizer for a variety of applications ranging from studio recording to large concert halls. It also offers a switchable active / passive mode for a powerful modern active sound or an organic traditional passive sound.
