Designed with local legend Darryl Jones, this signature bass is a curvier and sexier J-Bass complete with custom appointments like the bound and blocked neck and matching headstock. If you know Darryl's discography, then you know he plays with the heavyweights... Miles Davis, Sting, Madonna, The Rolling Stones... In 1985 Darryl commissioned a custom bass from Albey Balgochian, what began as a business relationship evolved into a deep friendship and their collaboration on the Darryl Jones Signature Model Bass. Darryl and Albey came to us to produce their design because they were sure we could deliver this modern vintage style bass to bass players worldwide. Darryl's bass is fitted with a pair of passive single coil pickups specially designed by Lakland. Three knobs control the tone: Bridge Volume, Neck Volume and Tone. The 35" scale means your low B's with always come through tight and deep.
