NOTE: this is a custom ordered bass that has been delivered to the player, but I just gotta show off this bass.
This is the second bass I have experienced with a 33″ scale low B that really works – must be some secret luthier mojo? It CAN be done.
What an easy player, with a great array of tonal possibilities via :
- 3 Pickups (with a ramp looking like a 4th pickup)
- Mike Pope 4 band EQ – not cheap, but you get what you pay for in terms of studio quality tone and signal to noise ratio
- The pickups are the Bartolini Classic line – NOT expensive but they sound fantastic
- The body is Ribbon Mahogany, the top Buckeye Burl, the neck Maple, Purpleheart and Bubinga. Guess what Chris charged for that top m go on, guess. How’s about $100. That’s wack, eh ?
