The Herr Schwarz is Le Fay’s most affordable bass . It uses the same proprietary pickups and preamp as do their other models, so it is functionally as fine as their top of the line models. The lower price is a result of the simple build and lack of an exotic top wood. In this case, function precedes form.
- Ash body
- 5 piece Maple neck, 33.86 scale ( feels just like a 34″ )
- Rosewood fretboard
- Premium fretwork = TAED
- Lefay proprietary pickups (3) and preamp (Vol, 6 position pickup selector, bass and treble and passive tome control)
- 9lbs, 6 oz.
- Gig bag
This bass is a sleeper , no exotic woods or paint job. Le Fay basses are absolutely among the very best I have played. No lie.
