HICKSVILLE, NY (March 24, 2021) – Michael Kelly Guitars has released new Pinnacle 4-string and 5-string bass guitars, expanding its electric bass lineup. Pinnacle 4 ($699.99 street price) and Pinnacle 5 ($739.99 street price) basses come in a natural burl finish and are available now via Michael Kelly’s dealer network.

Pinnacle 4 and 5 Basses  

Pinnacle 4-string and 5-string bass guitars combine excellent sound, remarkable feel and stylish looks that demanding bass players will appreciate. The swamp ash body is finished with an eye-catching burled poplar top in a shape that evenly distributes the weight of the instrument to make even the most extended sessions comfortable. The highly playable, five-piece maple and walnut neck topped with an ebony fretboard features glow-in-the-dark side markers allowing for easy navigation on a dark stage. The Michael Kelly MCN bridge with its adjustable saddles provide side-to-side micro adjustments to optimize string spacing and alignment. Truss rod adjustments are easy with no special tools using the spoke wheel at the base of the fretboard.

Pinnacle basses allow every player to quickly define their own signature sound. Two custom-wound Rockfield MDC humbucker pickups deliver a mid-range punch, with an increased output for a driven voice that’s rich with sustain. Each dual-coil pickup is equipped with a coil-split switch for delivering an airy, single-coil tone. The Michael Kelly custom preamp features a 3-band EQ with Bass, Mid and Treble controls. A push-pull Master Volume knob enables the active electronics or bypasses the preamp for a vintage passive tone.
