BASS PLAYERS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF ANY GREAT BAND’S SOUND.
They provide the fluid, melodic glue that holds the structure of a song together.
The electric bass was first developed in the 50’s and as it evolved in the 60’s it changed modern music entirely! Austin basses are a modern implementation of two of the classic designs from this era.
All Austin basses feature maple necks and rosewood fingerboards for warmth and clarity for all performance styles. Great finishes, fully adjustable bridges for perfect intonation and comfortable playability, high quality tuners and dual pole piece noise-canceling pickups are key features that bass players demand.
Whether you select Austin as your primary instrument or as a second style or backup to your main bass, Austin is a great choice.
This split-pickup style bass has been the leading design for rock and blues players since the 1950’s. It has a solid feel and great balance.
Many of the classic recordings from the 50’s and 60’s feature the balance and rumbling tone of this style bass and it continues to be a powerful workhorse for bass players around the world.
Used extensively by funk, blues and rock players the JB style basses have become known for their great live articulation and punch.
