    Hey, I think that these basses deserve a little bit more attention.

    I for myself am truly convinced of the stunning crafmanship of Human Base Basses. They are all custom made by Siggi J├Ąger.

    My recent purchase is a "Daily Base" fretless fivestring, it has a beautiful brazilian rosewood top, body is made of honduras mahogany/ flame maple, birdseye maple neck with fretless ebony fingerboard, Haeussel Jazzbucker pickup in ebony cover, active 3-Band EQ from Glockenklang with active/passive switch (treble control is a tone control in passive mode).

    Completely agree on human base.
    Alongside marleaux, lefay, magnusguitars and a couple other german luthiers I think their work is second to none,and better than many, worldwide.

    Search his uploads,...and the Roxy model and a 5 string with Delanos shows up (scroll down for the second model).

    The Roxy and the BaseOC are US-models, the others are entirely handcrafted in Germany.

    Beautiful. I like how the black stringers taper in the neck. Beautiful.

    Good luck with this bass! I tested the Roxy, and this is a true neck-breaking monster, it has lots of punch!

    The daily base is the best looking model of Human Base for sure. These are amazing fretless instruments.

    I also own a Max 6 string.
     
  18. Im sorry but i have to disagree! The Class X is the most beautiful Human Base...

    They are much alike, but I like the lower cut much more from the Daily Base. The ClassX was designed for an acoustic guitar player, so it fits best when you are sitting while playing.
