The Gb34JJ's Canadian hard maple neck provides strength and adds to a powerful tone with a strong upper-mid range. It responds sensitively to your picking and slapping techniques with a lot of articulation and power with just the right amount of tactile flexibility to stay as stable as possible. The two J-style single-coil pickups and 2-band active electronics offer a wide range of sounds for a variety of game situations and musical genres. Whether you're playing jazz that requires more dynamism or hard-popping modern funk that requires a clear and fast compressed attack, the active electronics EQ adds sonic versatility so you can adapt to virtually any game situation. The new Ergonomic Neck Joint is designed and implemented to facilitate easy access to the key's upper register and increases play comfort, while reducing the strain on tendons and awkward wrist and finger positions. Now you can only reach the highest tones and reach the highest notes with confidence and greatly improved playability.
