Perception 60 PJ Bass

Perception 60 PJ Bass


Quick Overview

The Fret-King Stvdio Perception 60 PJ bass brings together the best features of the two most successful bass concepts of our time, to give great sound and stability under the most extreme playing styles.

Constructed from carefully selected swamp ash, with optimal weight and density, the Perception 60 body is designed for perfect balance and comfort. The wide, slim profile, hard rock maple neck and thin rosewood fingerboard add to the subtlety of the Perception 60's tonal palette and provide a feel of reassuring familiarity, akin to slipping on an old kid glove.

By utilising an original spec, small diameter truss rod, there is a much greater ratio of wood to metal, retaining all that elusive 'vintage tone'™. The optional one-piece maple neck with rosewood fingerboard offers the journeyman bass player a true workhorse; versatile, positive and precise.

Attention to detail with the hardware includes authentic 'elephant ear'-style tuners, and a Wilkinson WB2P original style bridge with two fully intonatable brass saddles, which transmit all of the string energy to the body. A single string tree and low friction, high density Wilkaloid nut contribute to the overall positive feel and tone of the Perception 60.

The Fret-King 'vintage voiced' Alnico V custom pickups, dual volume controls and master tone control imbue the Perception 60 with a breadth of timbre which covers the needs of the most discerning studio and live performance bass player.

The Perception 60 PJ features the classic split humbucker, producing that signature profound, soulful, warm bass tone, with the double polepiece, single coil pickup adding bite and definition.
