Dear fellow low-enders, I am pleased to bring you the cream of the crop in Japanese hand made basses and have recently been given the go ahead by Deviser to market these abroad. STR are hand built at the ASKA plant in Nagano to the highest spec along side other Deviser brands like Bacchus, Momose and Headway. They are among the finest instruments in the world yet command a lower price than the likes of Fodera or US built Ken Smith for example. These instruments are not just amazing sounding and feeling instruments, they are also beautiful works of art Here's a few pics to put you in the mood The LS range are the most popular of the STR range, with the solid bolt on construction and deep neck pocket that makes for superb resonance and better sustain. The LS range can be ordered in 4 (LS449), 5(LS459), 6(LS648) or 7(LS748) string configurations. The spacing / string pitch at the bridge varies depending on number of strings. Specifically the 4 and 5 string models are 19mm, the 6 string and 7 string is 18mm. Prices start at $2000 and range up to $9000 depending on spec and as a foreign direct sales representative I now have the clearance to bring you these models factory direct at very competitive prices! In general I can offer the STR range at $300 - $400 less than retailers list prices. Please PM me for quotes or inquiries on available stock. Also please note that I offer shipping solutions which you can find out more about through PM inquiries.
