Released by Core Academy in 2015, the Model A40 Bass is a beautiful instrument for the price. The back and sides of the bass are fully laminated. The neck is made of aged maple. The bridge is also maple, with a black height-adjusting bridge with wheels.
Ebony fittings complete the bass outfit. The fingerboard is made of ebony, as well as the tailpiece and end pin. The tailpiece is a violin model (meaning it has a covered tail gut hole). End pin has a brass ring and screw, as well as a large rubber tip.
The scroll features brass tuning machine heads and is set up by Howard Core in the United States.
