World’s first 100% Passive Analog Bass Guitar Modeling System released

Obbligato has released Turnstyle, the world's first 100% analog bass guitar modeling system that installs directly into any Fender Jazz Bass Guitar and most similar instrument. This marks the first of many Turnstyle applications born out of the Obbligato Custom Shop.

The patent pending design uses the bass guitar's magnetic pickups and a convenient rotary switch to enable bass players to seamlessly switch between six instantly recognizable bass guitar tones. The growing Turnstyle product family continues to offer a significantly lower-cost alternative to most digital processor guitars and can be installed by anyone with basic soldering skills.

The unit is 100% return to stock friendly with no routing required and is a completely reversible mod. Price was kept to a minimum by leveraging the customer's existing pickups. This also allows the freedom of using Turnstyle with virtually all makes and models of Jazz Bass compatible pickups.

Turnstyle ships fully assembled with control plate, knobs, master volume and tone controls, Turnstyle switch, new mounting screws and a genuine Switchcraft output jack. Turnstyle for Jazz Bass is available in Chrome, Gold and Black and can be installed by anyone with basic soldering skills. No need to remove pickups or even the strings.

Turnstyle replaces the consumer's control panel instead of their guitar, is completely analog, requires no batteries, and provides instant access to six top bass guitar tones.
