    Mattisson basses look and sound fantastic. Anyone here on TB own one?

    So you tune the bass down to A or G with a D tuner.
    A Capo brings it to B...

    And?....

    What is it that makes this bass special?
    Can't one do that with any bass?


    Admittedly I only watched until the D-tuner part...

    Well, it's scale length supports the lower tuning at a reasonable tension with fairly typical strings, and the the neck has a neat bump on it so you can place the capo easily and feel where the neck would end...

    Nice bass, but yeah, anyone can do that.

    Do I want a bump on my bass's neck?
    Nope.

    I use a capo on my 'regular' 36" scale bass at times.
    Works fine down to the low G...even without a bump ;).

    Interesting idea, if not original.

    I have a custom Mattisson 33"-scale 5-string with two reversed aguilar p-pickups on order. Really nice basses and Mattisson himself is a really nice guy with a lot of knowledge about woods and everything. I highly recommend his basses.
