Manufacturer's Description

John Patitucci Signature Model

In the nearly 20 years since John Patitucci first gained recognition as a member of Chick Corea's legendary Electric Band, he has established himself as one of the best jazz bassists of his time. Shifting seamlessly from a bandleader to respected sideman, John relies on his TRB JP2 signature 6-string bass to fit any role. This is the new upgraded version of the TRBJP. New 35" scale neck with 26 frets. Active 5 controls includes a 3 band EQ tuned to John's specifications.

White Pearloid Peg Heads

White pearloid peg heads aid in balancing the super long scale neck while adding great looks.

Custom Pickups

Pickups are a custom Alnico V design. The low-noise side-by-side double-coil pickups deliver clear tonal image even when playing chords.

Solid Brass Bridge

A massive solid brass bridge delivers a clear and rich sound.

4-Ply Laminated Body

The 4-ply laminated body is crafted from plies of figured maple, ash, alder, and maple. This design produces tight and rich resonation over the instrument's entire range. A slap cut on the body offers greater string access.

26-Fret Neck

The 35-inch (889mm) super long scale neck has 26 frets. The maple neck is fitted with double truss rods to sufficiently counter tension produced by the instrument's six strings.

Active Electronics

The 5-control active electronics system offers a wide palette of tonal variation. Everything from subtle variations in tonal nuance to dynamic sound output is possible.
