Hi guys! I'm coming back writing on these pages 'cause of making of my new bass, a new "Stige" model, by "Biarnel Liuteria", that is Emiliano Nencioni, a young italian luthier whose basses you've already seen on this web site.
I wanted a more stronger sound and "evil" look, a "dark side" model for my group's live set (Demetra Sine Die: have you listened to the new album "A quiet land of fear" ? ). The last one was a very dark live set, because we played in almost complete obscurity to let see projections on the wall behind us. Also, I asked to Emiliano to have Luminlay dots to glow in the dark in this new bass. And it is! Sound is big, with good low-mid and a great attack, that's what I like, especially live where I have to be heared well with any amp and cabs I find on the stage. But sound is dinamic too, rich in all frequencies, so you can modify it with on board or amp eq
Woods: alder body with maple top&back, bolt-on 5 pieces neck maple-wengé-padouk-wengé-maple, ebony fingerboard. One humbucker alnico low impedence pick-up (made by Emiliano), active 3 bands electronics.
Shape has been designed by me (only on the esthetic side), to have a good look, with low weight - only 3380 grams - and a very good ergonomy, with special attention to stand-up picking playing (but you can also play sitting anyway, of course).
And what about color? Purpleburst with transparent black neck, really cool!
In the end, a very good bass, I like it a lot, it is really the one I wanted. But I was shure of this, having done other two basses with Emiliano: the first Akmé and the first Scorcio34 were born thanks to our collaboration. Thanks again Emiliano!
