Featuring carefully selected details and specs, delivering a great bass for stage or studio. To add to the comfort of this bass, it was built using red cedar. This wood from the mahogany family is a great tonewood that allows the bass to deliver the powerful sound that MK is committed to. However it is a lighter weight wood which allowed us to reduce the overall instrument weight. This was something that had been requested by players and the careful combination of the woods and other design aspects makes the Custom Collection Element bass especially comfortable to play. MK designers took liberties to enhance comfort and playability, combined with an upgraded die-cast bridge and a hidden aluminum tone block creating the Stealth Attack Bridge System. The combination delivers increased sonic performance including added sustain and attack.

MK Stealth Attack Bridge System
The impact of a bridge on the performance of a bass guitar is something that many often underestimate. In fact, the bridge is key to many aspects of tone and MK gave it the full respect that it deserved. You will see that we used a solid molded bridge with tight slots for each fully-adjustable saddle, a big enhancement on its own. Below that bridge is an aluminum tone block which adds sustain and attack. Since it is aluminum, it does not add weight to the bass, but has a similar sonic impact to using a heavy bridge.

MK Element Bass Line Pickups by Rockfield and Element Active Circuit
The pickups, controls, and electronics are another area where extensive testing and enhancements can not be overlooked. The pickups were developed specifically for the MK Element bass line by Rockfield and they have an over-wound classic pickup sonic performance. Blended with the Element Active Circuit that has been carefully tweaked to provide a modern sonic profile.

Excellent Customization Potential
Key to the design is the excellent user customization potential using the onboard controls. Those controls include offering you a stacked tone pot with separate treble and bass controls. There is also a blend via a blend knob to sweep from one pickup to the other or varying degrees of each. Also included is a bypass switch allowing you to go from active to a very vintage passive tone with a quick click.
