Hello Bass players around the world! This time I bring you the very cherished, treasured and very hard to find in good condition, the Curbow Petite 6 by Greg Curbow in 1996. Hand-carved tonewoods in the body, Rockwood in the neck and unmistakeable Curbow design throughout. The International Petite is hand made and displays the highest build quality and materials available anywhere. It is truly a work of art. The petite and perfectly balanced body have the exclusive Curbow designed tilt-back bridge with solid brass tone block. Curbow voiced Bartolini "Split Rail" pickups with 3-band EQ with adjustable mid-range (250Hz, 500Hz, 750Hz) and blend control. The adjustable Rockwood neck and fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a hand-cut Corian nut and lightweight Sperzel locking tuners. The bolt-on neck joint uses hardened steel inserts and five fasteners for maximum transfer of tone. The shape of the joint allows excellent access to the full range of the neck. Specs for this item are: Neck: Rockwood construction Body:,Mahogany body with hand carved mahogany top Pickups:Bartolini electronics Electronics: Bartolini: Tuners: Sperzel locking tuners Bridge: Super low action Curbow bridge and tone to die for Case: original Curbow hardshell case. Weight: Only 9.3 lbs, Only issues are some very light players marks on the back. About the rockwood neck: The neck and fingerboard on every Curbow String Instrument is made from Rockwood simply because it's the best. The best sonically, the best musically and the best structurally. Like the name says Rockwood is, in fact, wood. Rockwood is a man made material which starts with thin layers of premium void free Finish Birch hardwood. The Birch veneers are saturated with Phenolic based resin, layered, pressed with more than 2000 lbs per square inch and baked at 450 degrees. Dyes in the Phenolic even allow the material to be colored. This amazing material has the lively sonic qualities and soul of the wood on which it is based and the superb structural qualities of composites. Rockwood is unaffected by changes in temperature and humidity and it never becomes sticky or tacky. Every Curbow Rockwood neck utilizes a fully adjustable truss-rod system flanked by dual pultruded graphite torsion rods running the length of the neck. This allows the neck to be fully adjusted to accommodate all playing styles and techniques. Rockwood plus expert Curbow design, two of the Curbow differences that give the musician an instrument that sounds better, sustains longer and responds faster than any other. On-board Electronics Made by Bill Bartolini with exclusive Curbow designed voicings, the pickups and on-board electronics bring out the best in each Curbow String Instrument; and they bring out the best in the musician. For versatile and musical results, all Curbow String Instruments have an exclusive 3-way active EQ with a 3-band adjustable midrange. (Except for the Retro II Passive with its classic J-bass configuration with two volumes and one tone controls.) With two pickups, the International Exotic Petite adds a pickup blend control to the 3 way EQ and volume. The bass control offers 14db boost or cut at 40Hz. The midrange offers an awesome 18db boost or cut at user adjustable centers of 250Hz, 500Hz or 750Hz. The treble control offers 14db boost or cut at 4KHz. The Exclusive Bridge Design It's called the "witness point"... that place at the bridge where the string bends towards the body. Having a good witness point with a nice strong bend helps transfer the resonance of the string into the body of the instrument. (Tip: When you change your strings, never forget to put a little bend right there.) The International Exotic Petite and the XT-33 feature the fully adjustable, exclusive Curbow design bridge. This bridge is designed to give a strong witness point and superior resonance transfer. But it's more than the shape that matters, the Curbow bridge is made of solid milled brass, not steel, aluminum or pot metal. The M-Series and the Retro feature a high-quality, fully adjustable brass bridge. What it means to the musician is tighter, snappier strings, better tone and longer sustain. On the International Exotic Petite and the XT-33 the bridge is partially embedded into the body and tilted back for an even better witness point and better tone... And then there's the Curbow Tone Block: The Exclusive Curbow Tone Block is precision machined from Bell Brass. It is buried deep within the body of every International Exotic Petite and XT-33. The top wood is actually sandwitched between the bridge and the Tone Block. This way, all the resonance from the string is delivered deep into the core of the body. It complicates the manufacturing but we think it's worth it. You can't see it but you can hear it!
