Enquire For Stock

The long awaited Cole Clark Kennedy Basses have arrived! Crafted by master Australian luthier Neil Kennedy, in conjunction with Cole Clark Guitars here in Melbourne, each of these basses are unique and play like a dream. 

Fitted with Aguilar electronics, the preamp features an active/passive push-pull switch, pickup blend, vintage tone circuit (which operates in active or passive mode) and a three way EQ with a switchable mid frequency between 400Hz and 800Hz. These basses are some of the most versatile active basses on the market with an incredible range of tonal options. 

Neck through construction combined with a string through body and high mass bridge results in incredible sustain, while the brass nut gives piano-like clarity and punch. 

The Long Lady is a beautiful hand-crafted bass with boutique vibe, and represents the final result of Neil and the Cole Clark team's efforts over many years.
