Product Description

Tthe Billy Sheehan Signature Attitude 3 Electric Bass Guitar features Billy's sound taken to a new level, with refined characteristics.

Attitude's low-end is powerful and bold, yet tight and controlled. The highs are clear and musical and the mid drives with a power rarely heard. The latest technology, including our spline jointed body and exclusive ARE and IRA wood treatments together with newly designed pickups and a totally reworked neck joint make this bass something else. And with Billy's involvement every step of the way, playability is like no other guitar. It's clearly an Attitude, but it's an Attitude like you've never heard it before. Case sold separately.

Killer low-end with clear highs thanks to newly-designed pickups Reworked neck joint for extreme stability and increased resonance Seperate outputs for each pickup with the option to combine both pickups into one output Reworked neck towards the body to facilitate high-end slapping Less truss rod metal for a more lively tone Artificially aged body wood increases acoustic tone and pop Hipshot D-tuner Case sold separately

Take advantage of a winning collaboration between engineers and one of rock's best bassists. Order today.

Bought one of these basses after searching high and low for used Attitudes and always wanted to play one. Finally found a III online at GC used. It was basically brand new out of the box. Once I received it I was totally blown away. I have Fender P and J basses and am very familiar witht the P neck, my first bass and have it for over 25 years. The ABIII neck is so comfortable and the action is amazing. The playability blows all of my Fenders away and I hate to admit that because I still love playing them but this bass just raises the bar.
Construction is top notch. The neck through construction is solid and the body is solid but very light.

Hardware is excellent and the recessed bridge just adds to the low action and sustain. Harmonics are bright and clear, there's no fret buzz and the bass plays very fast. Comes with a set of BS strings which I really like. I'm not sure if it's the strings themselves or the neck profile but bending is quite easy to do everywhere on the fretboard and not just where the neck is scalloped. Which brings me to that section.... just a great feature that adds to new inspiring riffs and soloing ideas. I would never try or do that on my other basses as it was just such an effort to bend and not buzz or be difficult to do but the scalloped frets make it a breeze.

Fiinally, the tone. The EBO-esque neck pickup really keeps a nice low end thump and they are very complimentary to the P pups.

I would recommend this bass to anyone that was thinking about a high end "players" bass. This thing is meant to played and played hard.

.I am a Sheehan Fan and had been looking to upgrade my bass; i finally was able to afford this beauty. All my high expectations where exceeded. Sounds great, lots of flexibility. From my novice perspective it is a SOLID instrument and highly recommended

.I loved the Attitude 2, and still play that bass at gigs. Having said that, I feel that the Attitude 3 made some great improvements. The biggest improvement I have noticed is the bass/neck pickup. On the Attitude 2, if you engaged both pickups, the neck pickup would really drown out the p-bass pickups, and the tone was much too deep without any definition.

The tone on the new neck pickup is much richer IMO and blends well with the p-bass pickups. The layout of the neck pickup is also much smaller and allows easier access to the stings for popping and plucking.

The finish on the neck is perfect... smooth and fast.

The p-bass pickups allow you to raise much higher than the Attitude 2 which allows for some lightening fast finger picking (ala Billy Sheehan style).

Loved the feel and playability of the ATT2, but the ATT3 has better tone, and even better feel.

.This bass is simply the best playing and sounding bass I have ever played if you don't mind a signature bass and a thick neck u will love this bass if your style of bass playing is more solid then u may not want this for the cost but if your a burner on the neck then u want this bass trust me
