This bass was supposed to join us at the Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin, but ofcourse we are more than happy that it ended up with Sting instead.
(You can also see his ST-Style guitar here..)
As with our guitars we have made no compromisses with either the looks, playability or sound.
We have adopted some of the ergonomic features from our guitars such as the tilted fretboard, allowing a straighter angle on your left hand whrist, and a narrow neck joint giving easyer access to the upper frets. To make sure that you reach the highest E we have also given it 21 frets.
Its chambered aspen body gives an extremely light weight and resonant instrument with a rich tone. Due to its light weight, it is equipped with Hipshot Ultralite tuners to prevent it from becoming top heavy.
Edmire Pickups has developed some great sounding pickups, and we have put a lot of attention in to their positioning.
The result is a clear and open bass sound with a lot of punch. The neck-pickup can be switched from series to paralell to create a sound that is both smooth and warm.
