Cort Guitars and Jeff Berlin have collaborated to release the Jeff Berlin Signature bass guitar for 2014. The new model will debut in January at the NAMM Show located in Anaheim, CA and begin shipping to dealers in February. To celebrate, Berlin will be on hand to demonstrate the new bass during NAMM. An official European launch will begin in March starting with the London Bass Guitar Show followed by various clinics around Europe and culminating at the Musikmesse Frankfurt.
Called the Rithmic, the bass features an alder body with a spalted maple and padouk top. Outfitting the body are a pair of Bartolini Jeff Berlin custom soapbar pickups, a Babicz FCH4 bridge, one volume control, one balance control, one tone control, passive electronics and gold hardware. The hard rock maple neck is complemented with a rosewood fingerboard and four inline headstock featuring Hipshot Ultralight tuners. The action on the bass is low and it is set up with DR Strings Custom DDT (Drop Down Tuning) for easy playing.
Demonstrations during the NAMM Show are scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24th and Saturday, Jan 25th at 11:00AM and 2:00PM at the Cort booth #4458, in Hall C.
