Gary Grainger 4-String Bass

In 2003, renowned bassist Gary Grainger - who has played with John Scofield, Dennis Chambers, and Frank Gambali, among others - and Paul Reed Smith began to collaborate on the first Gary Grainger Private Stock bass design. Andnow we're thrilled to offer that 5-string Signature Bass in a 4-string model. With its new mastering EQ pre-amp, new bridge, new pickups and single-coil switches, this is a player's instrument that can satisfy aficionados far and wide.

SWITCHING

Knobs 1-2 are volume controls and passive/active switch:

Knob 1: Neck pickup volume. 
Down = Active, Up = Passive  If this knob is up and Knob 2 is down only the neck pickup (passive) is heard

Knob 2: Bridge pickup volume. 
Down = Active, Up = Passive
If this knob is up and Knob 1 is down only the bridge pickup (passive) is heard.
If both knob 1 and knob 2 are in the up position, both pickups (passive) are heard.


Knobs 3-5 are a 3-band EQ control:

Knob 3: Bass EQ. Only functions with pickups in active mode.
Knob 4: Mid EQ. Only functions with pickups in active mode.
Knob 5: Treble EQ. Only functions with pickups in active mode.


Mini toggles (coil split controls):

Mini Toggle 1: Neck pickup coil split. Down = Humbucker; Up = Single Coil
Mini Toggle 2: Bridge Pickup coil split. Down = Humbucker; Up = Single Coil


The bass will function passively without batteries.  There is an indicator on each battery compartment to show 9V installation orientation.
