    Yes with a bass boost switch in knob form. Confused?

    The BeBop’s electronics are a blend of tradition and innovation. It is uses traditional passive single coil pickups. The first 3 knobs are Vol, Vol, Tone, as you might expect. Tone is a pushpull potentiometer, changing capacitors when you switch. This gives you vintage or modern treble roll off. Vintage (pull) is great to use on the bridge pickup, fully closed, for that typical mid-hump, Jaco-sound. Modern (push) is great for any slight reduction of high freq’s. See this video. The 4rth knob is our unique Fatboost. It is a switch that activates a low frequency boost. It’s factory-preset to be very subtle, but you can adjust an internal trimmer in the rear cavity if you want to give it more gain. With these 4 controls you can get anything from dark vintage to beefy modern sounds.

    yes it does!
     
  14. I like it. Have recently been considering a Marcus Miller 5 (different slimmer 34 scale neck... and lightweight). This MM direction is different for me as I play a Vintage Tobias Killer B 5 as my main bass.... with its active electronics and punchy modern tone. I liked your bebop description. What does yours weigh? Nut width (small hands)? Spacing at bridge? Thanks.
