We’re excited to officially introduce our first ever passive basses! The Cutlass and Caprice are the latest additions to the iconic Ernie Ball Music Man bass collection and continue our legacy of basses with classic tones in attractive and modern packages.

Passive pickups are the original pickup technology and have powered electric bass sounds for many classic recordings. Take a listen to the Cutlass and Caprice below and find a dealer to pre-order starting 7/1.

  1. Hello gentlemen!

    These two basses are beautiful man! I already have them as screen savers in my phone! I was wondering, since the necks are from your Bongo/Sterling basses, if these ( Cutlass/Caprice) will be offered in a 5 string model. I already own two Sting Rays (fretted/treeless)but wanted a passive 5 string. Man if this is coming PLEASE let me know ’cause I’ll be all over these two babies!

    GBY all!
