Short scale bass hunters! Attention!

Are you small? Does your back hurt? Do you travel a lot?
If you answered yes to any of these questions - then Form Factor Custom Shop made this is the bass for you!

Sore shouldered bassists can tell you that fighting "neck dive" from a poorly balanced instrument is akin to slow torture. Treat your body right with the Form Factor FPB4 shorty bass, built with your health in mind, using high-quality/tone wood that is not common in this price range. 
Premium Eastern European Ash
Built with high-quality tone wood that is not common in this price range.
European Ash tone wood is known to produce a well-balanced tone. It is highly resonant and offers a nice balance of pleasant highs, firm lows, and a slightly scooped midrange which is great for slap playing.
All Form Factor Audio basses come with Dual Truss rod system and Double Titanium Reinforcement Rods. There are a lot of basses on the market with a tendency to have weak neck binding structures due to strong string tensions. For this reason, to maintain neck stiffness and stability, two Titanium rods are applied to all Form Factor Audio bass guitars. We call this Double Titanium Reinforcement Rod.

TUSQ NUT
The nut is one of the most important parts of the bass that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. TUSQ nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tones than plastic, corian or other materials.

ACCURATE AND STABLE TUNING
Hipshot Premium Bass Tuning machine heads (Hipshot American Classics or Ultralite) developed with accurate gear ratio, the machine heads are very reliable in tuning.  Due to small production and big demand this bass is Build to order, ETA 2-3 month.
High-quality premium Lollar Jazz Bass Pickups made in USA, plain enamel coils  Featuring superior tone and vintage output, Lollar 60’s J-bass pickups offer a full, clear sound, the booming bottom-end tones you want along with the clarity, balance, and consistency you need. 
Vintage NOS 70's Volume/Tone pots, Military grade Oil/Paper Vintage tone capacitor, for smooth, "velvety" roll off.
