Xotic Introduces the XJ-1T 6-String Bass

A new six-string version of their popular XJ-1T model.

Van Nuys, CA (August 15, 2014) -- Xotic has introduced its new XJ-1T in a 6-string version. This new XJ-1T model has the look, feel, tone, and playability of a traditional jazz-type bass, but with six strings. The new XJ-1T 6-string features a 34-inch scale, the Xotic Hum Reduction Inductor (HRI), and comes in natural or black.

Xotic endorser Travis Carlton (Plays with Larry Carlton, Scott Henderson, Robben Ford) states, “It’s so cool to have a 6-string that still sounds like a jazz bass!”

Xotic now offers the XJ-1T in 4, 5, and 6-string configurations.
