ProVintage Bass

Introducing the XJ-ProVintage Series

  • I don't have to work hard – I just play it. Nice and balanced and not too heavy. It’s a great feeling instrument.

Electronics Package

Finally, the electronics package is where the ProVintage series shines.

We equip the XJPRO 5-string with the same electronics that come appointed to all Xotic basses.

Volume, tone and balance (panning between pickups) are the three main control knobs. Pull the volume knob up for a passive system or leave it down for an active system that includes a powerful 3 band EQ. The bass also comes equipped with Raw Vintage USA JB-5 pickups hand wound in Los Angeles and fitted with wooden covers for an elegant look.

The electronics package on the ProVintage is where things get even more interesting. The bass is fitted with two single-coil pickups with elegant wood covers. You get three familiar controls—chrome knobs for volume, tone, and balance (panning between the pickups)—but also a novel choice between active and passive systems.

Pull the volume knob up for passive operation, which is dead quiet. When the knob is down, the active side is on, bringing online a powerful 3-band EQ (via three black knobs) and a substantial volume boost over passive.

The Xotic Pro Vintage line of basses were introduced as a “limited run” in 2017.  The initial run sold out and currently there are no plans to continue production of this model. Xotic basses (models XJ/XP/XPJ series) are available through our custom shop located in Japan.  These models represent the apex of craftsmanship, quality and sound excellence. Each handmade instrument celebrates Xotic’s bass guitar legacy through preciseness, tone and attention to detail.
