Custom 9 string

A beautiful Figured Redwood top is only the beginning on this impressive 9
string. Utilizing a multiple scale/ fanned fret 37- 35 1/2" scale lengths allow more
precise intonation and give the lower strings more room to vibrate. The neck is
a laminate of Wenge, Bocote and Purpleheart that are reversed for the head and
heel block. The volute and heel block spacer are a laminate of Maple and
Purpleheart. The fingerboard is Bocote and sports 26 EVO Gold frets. The body
"wings" are Purpleheart. Pickups are proprietary Simonetti Split coil humbuckers
in custom designed covers. the Bridge is also custom designed for this bass
and features brass string saddles and nut. The knobs and pickup covers are
Bocote over Wenge with Maple accents. The tail of the body and peak of the
head have matching Purpleheart accents. Hipshot Ultralight tuners were almost
a must on a bass this size. The electronics are from Darkglass and have an
active bypass switch. Dunlop strap locks hold this beauty in place. The finish is
hand rubbed satin oil. This bass is another good example of custom and really
has to be seen in person to appreciate all of it's features.


A bass with similar specs and features would be in the $25,000.00 price range.
