For the player who is seeking that perfect balance of punchy low end tone with all the attributes of a boutique setup and feel without the huge price tag - look no further than Xotic ProVintage Series Basses.

Combining countless hours of research as well as valuable input from customers, profession players and builders from all over the world, we have crafted a bass with a well-balanced tone and feel that players have come to expect from Xotic basses.

The ProVintage Series basses, inspired by the Xotic XJ Series, feature a structurally balanced neck coated with an oil finish for reliable intonation and a comfortable feel.

Additionally, the ProVintage Series basses utilises the same onboard preamp electronics that come in all Xotic Basses for a selection of punchy vintage-modern tones while each pickup is meticulously hand wound in our shop and specifically voiced for these basses.

The XJPRO-1 5-string basses are assembled in Indonesia, then shipped to our factory here in Los Angeles, CA to have the neck Plek’d and given its final setup and inspection.

Finally, the electronics package is where the ProVintage series shines.

We equip the XJPRO-1 5-string with the same electronics that come appointed to all Xotic basses.

Volume, tone and balance (panning between pickups) are the three main control knobs. Pull the volume knob up for a passive system or leave it down for an active system that includes a powerful 3 band EQ. The bass also comes equipped with Raw Vintage USA JB-5 pickups hand wound in Los Angeles and fitted with wooden covers for an elegant look.

The electronics package on the ProVintage is where things get even more interesting. The bass is fitted with two single-coil pickups with elegant wood covers. You get three familiar controls—chrome knobs for volume, tone, and balance (panning between the pickups)—but also a novel choice between active and passive systems.

Pull the volume knob up for passive operation, which is dead quiet. When the knob is down, the active side is on, bringing online a powerful 3-band EQ (via three black knobs) and a substantial volume boost over passive.

Customer feedback

Submitted on the 11th July 2019 by Maarten in the Netherlands who ordered an Xotic XJ-Pro bass

Very pleased with my purchase and with Bass Direct. It was very easy to communicate with Mark, every email was answered promptly and my order was shipped out on the requested date. The order was well packaged and I received it undamaged.

Was not entirely sure what to expect when I ordered the bass as sometimes the information supplied by the store and the positive sounds on YouTube do not always reflect the actual product. But with regards to the Xotic Pro Vintage bass that I ordered everything on the website and on YouTube is true, the bass is very well build and to be honest it exceeds my expectations which is always good. It is my first five string so it takes some getting used to but it plays and sounds fantastic, the bass offers lots of tonal variations and the B string is tight. There is always things that can be improved but to be honest at this price point this bass is an absolute steal and I can recommend it to everyone.
