The Joe Dart Jr Artist Series Signature Bass offers a custom contoured body and 'simplified' single humbucker layout.

The short-scale bass features a lightweight ash body , select maple neck, and a passive neodymium pickup. But there's no additional controls – it's all reliant on your playing dynamics. 

The Dart Jr is fitted with 22 stainless steel frets, chrome hardware, and ships set up and tuned down to C standard with custom .045 - .105 Ernie Ball Short Scale Flatwound Bass Strings.

Ernie Ball Music Man and Mono have also joined  to offer this JR model with a Mono M80 Vertigo Gig Bag.
