The full scale fingerboard is graduated for consistent response from note to note, with adjustable relief and bridge height to suit all playing styles. The Polar bridge pickup system combines great sound with directional sensitivity, for a rich and expressive response to pizzicato and arco technique. Optional EMG magnetic pickups expand the range to include classic electric bass sounds.
