Artist APB Black Bass Guitar w/ Accessories

Please Note: We are in the process of changing model names of some of our guitars. The PB2 and APB are the same specification.

We believe it's important to have a great quality instrument to kick off your musical career. These bass guitars are designed to be easy to play so they are a great starting point if you want to pick up a bass for the first time. This is a full-size bass and is recommended for Adults or Children over the age of 12 (or younger if your child is strong and taller than 1.2m).

This classic design is very similar to models used for decades on all of your favourite recordings! This style of bass is absolutely timeless, and is great for any style of music from funk, to blues to slap and rock'n'roll!

Our price is always lower than a retail store (often by 30-40%), and we keep our prices low by only selling our own range of guitars direct from the factory. Our business is built on offering a great value instrument at a great price.

Why wait to start learning bass guitar when you could get one of our great APB bass guitars and be playing in no time at all?

Amplifier Specs: 15 Watt, 4 band EQ, Auxilliary Input, Headphone Socket

Speaker: 6.5 Inch Speaker at 8 Ohms

Size: 290mm x 290mm x 170mm / 11716” X 11716” X 61116

Colour: Black

BA15 - Front Panel Functions:

Input - This is your Bass guitar jack input

Volume - Governs the volume level of both clean and Overdrive channels

Treble - Controls the high frequencies of the Bass guitar tone. If you increase the treble your bass will sound brighter

High-Mid - Dictates the higher side of your middle-frequency register of the amplifier. Turning this up will make your guitar sound bittier, ideal for Slap style Bass. Conversely reducing the amount of High-mid in your tone will result in a darker and warmer Bass guitar sound for the classic Rock and Jazz Bass tones

Low-Mid - Dictates the Lower side of your middle-frequency register of the amplifier. Turning this up will make your Bass guitar sound fatter, ideal for Rock and Metal style Bass tone. Conversely reducing the amount of Low-Mid in your tone will result in a scooped hollower Bass guitar sound for most Metal and Funk styles of Bass playing

Bass - Controls the amount of low frequencies or bottom end in your tone. The more you increase, the more punch you will add. If your sound sounds too muddy then decrease this control to Tighten your sound

Aux In - Allows you to connect any media player by using a 3.5mm jack input. This gives you the option to play along to any backing track or music coming from any media device

Phones - Plug your headphones here for silent practising. Doing this mutes your BA15's internal speaker, cutting out the speaker sound

Great choice!

Stoked with the whole kit. It sounds great. The bass looks incredible. The amps a perfect size. The bag has 3-4mm of cushioning all around. The tuner is simple. And it stays in tune too. And for someone who has never even held a bass before, I'm blown away that you can get everything you need for $319 bucks, that sounds great. Ordered on a Sunday, arrived in country nsw on the Tuesday. They say 3 business days. But this took 1.5 business days. Thanks to u all at Artist Guitars.

This guitar is amazing! The quality is very impressive for such cheap and affordable price. It sounds really good. The amp that comes with this guitar is great! It sounds good with any guitar and pedals. I used this guitar with a marshal amp and it sounded really nice. This product is definitely worth buying and giving a try.
