This unique bass is made from figured blackwood and sitka spruce. The long. elegantly carved scroll is grafted maple. The C extension is ebony and is not drilled through the scroll. The bass shape is derived from the 2009 cornerless model, with enlarged upper bouts, and features a "Tucker" braced flatback and removable neck.
The bass has a mature and distinctive voice and a very manageable 41" string length.
Stylised leaf pattern.
Tuners made by Martyn Bailey in England.
Pattern derived from the 2015 model, but a wider upper bout for more orchestral volume.
Stunning Tasmanian Blackwood as usual
Short string length and manageable body shape.
Scroll detail, going over the top ...
Slender three-wheel extension is not drilled into the scroll, and feeds onto the E tuner.
Removable neck bolt hidden with a magnetic cap.
Unique internal "Responsive" bracing stops cracks and improves response.
