    Hey guys, just wanted to show you some pictures of my New Bass (First Custom order:hyper:). Built in Germany by Luthier Rüdiger Ziesemann of Bassline Basses in Krefeld Germany.

    The Specs:
    • Bassline Buster CW 5 Strings. 19mm String Spacing 35" Scale
    • Quilted Maple top with Swamp Ash Core, Chambered Body
    • 3 Piece 1/4 Sawn Maple Neck Birdseye Maple Fingerboard
    • Matte See-thru Black Dye Finish, Quilted Maple Matching Headstock
    • Zero Fret (standard for Bassline Basses)
    • All Black Hardware ETS tuner Fork Bridge / ETS Knobs /Kluson Tuners
    • 2 Delano SBC 5 HE/S Humbuckers / Switch for Single Coil, Series and Parallel
    • Noll TCM3. 3Band Active EQ / Push Pull for Passive Mode.
    • 2 Volumes, Bass, Mid and Treble
    • D'addario Pro Steels 45-130 (I usually prefer Rotosound 66s, but getting them for 35" Scale Basses in Germany is quite difficult)

    I'm really enjoying this bass The 35" Scale really makes the B string tight, absolutely amazing, lots of sustain and punch.

    I hope you enjoy the Pictures.

    Very, VERY nice! That is a lot of chambering, how much does it weigh?

    I really love the transparent black with the maple board.

    Thank you!

    The weight is somewhere between 8.5 to 9 lbs, which for a 5 String/35" bass is quite alright. Plus, I got a pretty Wide Leather Strap for it :)

    Thank you!

    The bass is really amazing, thank you. Bassline is a german company that's been around for over 20 years now. Unfortunately they are quite unknown outside of germany, and even here they are kept as a secret. You should definitively check them out for high quality custom basses.
