When you combine the smallest body shape we make, the Essence, with lighter weight woods, you can take an Essence that's usually about 8.5 pounds and shave it down to just 6.75 pound. That's light for one of our basses! A test of this bass was featured in the February 2018 issue of Vintage Guitar Magazine.

We make the neck with primary neck laminates of Mahogany. This cuts down on the weight, but also imparts a warmer, rounder tone. With the Walnut neck laminates, that warmth is punctuated with excellent attack.

Controls include volume, pan, and our classic low-pass filter with a Q-switch, plus an on/off switch to operate the side LEDs in amber with red at the 12th and 24th positions.

This bass also includes mother of pearl oval inlays and an Alembic bird tailpiece shape for a couple of extra custom touches.
