Wombat JS5 5-String Barnwood

The harder the wood, the greater the string tension and this bass is made of Hard North European Swamp Ash. The quarter sawn maple neck is stiffer than plain sawn, and will also affect string tension. This is exactly why the Low B 5th string on this bass sounds better than on most 35" scale basses.

Limited production, Custom order only. Please allow 3-4 months for the build.

DUAL TRUSS ROD SYSTEM

All Form Factor instruments utilize Dual Truss Rods made from Titanium to maintain neck stiffness, stability and reduce weight. There are a lot of basses on the market with a tendency to have weak neck binding structures due to high string tensions. For this reason, two Titanium rods are applied to all bass guitars.

TUSQ NUT

The nut is one of the most important parts of the bass that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material, the nut can either improve or degrade the sound. Although the TUSQ nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tones than brass, corian or other materials.

ACCURATE AND STABLE TUNING

Each bass comes with GOTOH (made in Japan) or Hipshot tuners. Developed with accurate gear ratios, the machine heads are very reliable in tuning.

ELECTRONICS

High-quality premium Bass Pickups by High-end Bartolini pickup builder and with Bartolini electronics.

BRIDGE

Each bass comes with a Form Factor Audio Custom Light Weight Duralumin bridge, with Bell Bronze saddles and extra-hard tension saddle springs to eliminate annoying parasitic rattles/vibrations coming from other types of bridges.
