Here we have a prime and mint example of one of the best basses out of Germany. Schack has been building basses for many years, though they were never imported in quantity to the States.
Bottom line – you do not see many of these basses here.
Build quality is truly world class, as good as I have seen.
First, the woods. Body wings are 7 piece , Flame Maple core with thin Wenge and Maple
veneers topped off front and rear by stunning Black Poplar Burl, a wood I first
experienced several years ago on Jerzy Drozd’s high end basses.
The neck is an eleven piece design , primarily Flame Maple with Bubinga runners. Yes, it is 36 ” scale, but is very comfy and easy on my small to average sized hands.
The pickups are by BassTech of Germany, and the preamp is a great design = volume, blend and three bands of semi-parametric EQ. Note those three concentric knobs offering frequency selection and cut / boost – very versatile and useful.
This bass is used but MINT.
Supplied with an ultralight hardshell case.
