The Lowlander is a tribute and thorough reinterpretation of one of the world's most famous rockbasses. Some of the goals for this bass were that it should not suffer the hated neckdive and that it shouldn't feel 'extended'. Or more positively stated: it should maintain a comfortable position in every situation. It should encapture the classic sound you'd expect, but also have some added versatility. And it should be strong enough to minimise the risk of a broken headstock.

Battle Creek, MI, 10th October 2017 – GHS is delighted to launch their new Balanced Nickels strings for bass guitars, a combination of traditional string materials and modern string design.
Traditionally, bass strings are made by wrapping one cover wire around the core to create the G, two covers for the D and A, and three covers for the E string. GHS’ Balanced Nickels bass strings change all this: in these new sets, they manufacture the G and the E strings by wrapping two covers around the core, bringing a fresh symmetry to the sets. The result is an equilibrium between tonality, tension, flexibility and playability.
Balanced Nickels are available in light and medium gauges for 4 and 5 string basses. Short Scale Balanced Nickels are also available.
GHS’ Balanced Nickel bass strings offer balanced construction, tonality, tension, flexibility and playability – that’s what they mean when they say, ‘play with the best, play GHS!’

This new addition to the GB7 series meets 21st century demand by combining a proven body and bridge design with enhanced electronics, machine heads and more.

They’ll also be drawn to the natural beauty of Swamp Ash, with its distinctive grain patterns that are visible through the transparent finish and clear pickguard.

With the introduction of the two-pickup 4001 model in 1961, the Rickenbacker bass became a phenomenon.
