Improved Intonation

The bass includes a Graphtech Nubone nut that is made from proprietary synthetic material and offers superior tonal qualities and durability. The material is designed to provide a consistent tone across all the strings for greater tuning stability. These nuts are also resistant to wear and tear, ensuring that they last longer than traditional materials like bone or ivory.

Easy to Play

Designed with a C-shaped neck, the G4M 878 6-String offers a comfortable playing experience for bassists of all skill levels. The contour of the C-shaped neck conforms perfectly to the shape of the player's hand for an improved grip, allowing them to play for extended periods.

The larger frets can be particularly beneficial for players with bigger hands, or those who prefer to use a lighter touch when playing, as they provide greater resistance to the strings, allowing for more control over the instrument's tonal quality.

Extended-Range Design

The G4M 878 6-string bass offers a number of benefits to bass players. The additional strings provide a greater range of notes and more versatility in playing styles, making it possible to play a wider variety of music. With the ability to access lower notes, these basses are particularly useful for genres like Metal or Jazz where lower tunings are often used. The extended range can also make it easier to play complex bass lines, as it provides more options for note placement and chord voicings.
