rage in the 70s but now regarded as a tone sink ) was replaced with a black Corian nut which facilitates string movement through the nut and improves treble response on the open strings. The original Grover tuning heads were no longer available in the size that would fit the small headstock of the JB4 so high quality Schaller machine head was fitted instead. Finally the pickup positions were moved forward slightly so as to allow the bridge pickup to produce a fuller bass sound when selected individually.
The finish is Maton’s own satin formula designed to enhance the acoustic properties of an instrument while the brown mahogany stain on the body is a reproduction of the original colour. Player feedback suggests that Maton has hit the mark in terms of reproducing a classic bass. Comments like “This neck feels exactly the same as my old one” and “It’s just like meeting an old friend” are testament to a job well done. It seems like it is just a matter of time before the JB4 is again featuring as the bass of choice for a whole new generation of musicians.
