The Five String Bass

5 string bass

A brand new design of bass, also available in four string and six string.

Made to Sound great, featuring our in house designed and handwound pickups. Constructed using light weight tonewoods with an orientation that allows this bass to sing. A beautifully resonant bass that’s an inspiration to play.

The combination of mahogany and maple in the neck give you the best of both worlds, with the brightness of the maple with the punchy undertones of mahogany. The singing Ebony fingerboard and earthy walnut body finish off the tone nicely to give a lively playing and angelic sounding bass. Visit the workshop to have a go.
