We got a little creative and built a pair of 5-string, 32″ scale Armitage basses. Each bass features an ultra-powerful G&L MFD (Magnetic Field Design) pickup designed by Leo Fender himself… he never got it wrong when it came to the bass! The pickup is sculpted by a G&L preamp that features bass and treble cut-only EQ controls, a Series/Parallel switch, and 3 modes: Passive, Active, and Treble Boost. Benny ran wild with fun summer colors and custom two-tone competition stripes that are echoed on the headstock!
“The Serek Armitage is my take on the tried-and-true P bass. With a quarter-sawn maple neck and Hipshot USA hardware this bass is ready for anything you throw at it. The body contours and slim neck profile with a 1 5/8” nut width make this bass play itself. Imagine all the benefits of a P bass without all the clumsiness and clunk and you have the Armitage.”
