Product Overview A5 Plus SCMS
The new A5 Plus SCMS is Cort’s bold foray into innovative modern bass concepts such as a single-cutaway for enhanced body-neck balance and multi-scale for a longer scale length on the bass strings (from 35.5”) to shorter scale length on the treble strings (to 34”). The result is a state-of-the-art bass for the most discriminating musician.

Single Cutaway Multi-Scale Bass
The single cutaway body shape improves the body-neck balance for added comfort while still providing unfettered access to the high frets while the multi-scale produces more tension for the low strings, resulting in a tighter and more focused lower register sounds.

Neck-Thru Body Construction
When it comes to punch and sustain, nothing beats neck-thru-body construction. The strings vibrate across the body and neck in coherent and linear manner, maximizing the tightness of the low-end with rich mids and singing highs.

Bartolini MK-1 Pickups
The trademark Bartolini sound is preserved in the MK-1 while providing superb sound quality and value. The MK-1 delivers plenty of punchy and warm mids along with transparent and brilliant highs for a superbly balanced sound.

Individual Hardtail Bridge
Each string has its own dedicated hardtail bridge unit, greatly improving string separation and reducing crosstalk for greatly enhanced articulation and definition.

Bartolini MK-1 EQ
Bartolini’s renowned MK-1 preamp provides powerful yet transparent boost along with its trademark crisp high-end. The MK-1 transfers the natural liveliness of the bass through a flexible 3-band equalizer for a variety of applications ranging from studio recording to large concert halls. It also provides a switchable active/passive mode for a powerful modern active sound or an organic traditional passive sound.

Panga Panga Fingerboard
An African hardwood, Pangapanga has characteristics of Wenge and produces a tight and coherent sound that mates extremely well with the instrument’s multi-laminate neck-thru-body construction.

Hipshot Ultralite Machine Heads
A5 Plus SCMS is equipped with Hipshot Ultralite Tuners (classic 20:1 tuning ratio) that is made of cast zinc with aluminum strings posts and mounting nuts, resulting in 30% weight reduction over other regular tuners and which results in improved balance and tuning accuracy.

Spalted Maple Top On Swamp Ash Body
Classic body tone wood Swamp Ash is mated with exotic Spalted Maple top to strike an ideal balance between the traditional and the modern - both in looks and in sound.

5PCS Maple & Panga Panga Neck
The strength and brightness of Maple is ideally balanced with the warm midrange of PangaPanga, resulting in superb playability, feel and tonal definition. Features • Construction: Neck-Thru
