Not your basic Essence here. We've added Macassar Ebony as the top laminate. This upgrade wood is very dense, and keeps a very tight sound. It's also nearly black, with some dark brown streaks running through it. Macassar Ebony looks great with our new blue side LEDs (they're on in the picture, reflecting off the inside edge of the upper horn).

As beautiful as Macassar Ebony is, what's really important is that it sounds awesome. Adding to the natural tone of the wood is the circuit from our Europa bass. These easy controls give you volume and pan with a low-pass filter and Q switch. There's 2 other tone control switches, one for bass and one for treble. These "quick tone change" switches allow for cut, boost and flat settings. Punch them both down when it's time for your solo, then quickly return to your original setting. We said it was easy!
