Ernie Ball Music Man Caprice Bass Guitar

A brand new yet vintage offering from Ernie Ball Music Man basses.  Introducing the first fully passive Caprice Bass Guitar.  If you're looking for low-fi greasy bass tone, and rely on our amp and effect pedals to manipulate your tone, this bass is for you!

Let's examine the Ernie Ball Music Man Caprice Bass Guitar

  • Music Man Inline Humbucker & Offset Humucker pickups
  • Sleek Modern Feel
  • Passive Electronics for low-fi, old school goodness

Music Man Inline Humbucker & Offset Humucker pickups

Here's an interesting approach to a classic pickup style configuration.  Ernie Ball included split P Bass and inline J Bass pickups on the Caprice.  Both pickups still have that Ernie Ball 'ballsy' growl, but have the undertones of a classic Fender bass as well.  

Sleek Modern Feel

The compact and offset design of the Ernie Ball Music Man Caprice Bass Guitar give the body shape a comfortable and balanced feel that is a joy to play on.  The bridge is constructed from hardened steel for a great look and tonal stability, and the bass is set off with the oversized headstock with Ernie Ball's signature 3+1 tuner array.  The bass plays quick and comfortably!

Passive Electronics for low-fi, old school goodness

When building your stable of go-to basses, they can't all be high definition, active, bright and sizzling axes.  There has to be room for the low-fi vintage sound.  This bass meticulously reproduces said low-fi sound with all it's passive-ness.  Warm, 70's vinyl tones are easily achieved direct in to your amp.

Grab a vintage sounding bass in a sleek modern package!
