Jericho Guitars releases the Alpha 5

The five-stringer is the latest addition to the Alpha series of electric bass guitars.

Jericho Guitars Alpha 5

Jericho Guitars has added a new five-stringer to its Alpha line of basses, which debuted in 2017. And like its four-string predecessors, the Alpha 5 impresses with its high-quality hardware and craftsmanship that belie its modest price tag.

Apart from the additional string, the Alpha 5 sports pretty much the same specs as the original Alpha: a 35-inch scale, solid ash body, Macassar ebony fretboard, single-piece maple neck, Hipshot bridge and tuners, and StewMac Golden Age P- and J-style pickups. And that’s not to mention its stealthy, all-black look borrowed from the Alpha Blacker.
