    Went to Atlanta bass gallery about a month ago and saw this bass that I wasn't familiar with so I asked and was told the Lutheir use to work for xotic bass company, Didnt get the chance to play one but they sure look good and from what I'm hearing sounds even better than xotic basses, Anyone knows about these basses and has anyone tried one yet, what's your opinion about them if you have....

    I didn't get the chance to play one too but (as you already mentioned) they sure look good and cost even more than Exotic basses.

    One thing I don't like right off the bat, wouldn't want a PG screw right where I anchor my thumb on the front pup when I play the B string.

    This is not the only bass style they produce though......they have other options.

    A while back I was looking for examples of how the Aguilar Super Double pickups sound and I found this video - a Miura loaded with Super Doubles.



    I'd never heard of the brand before.

  9. From the website.

    " August 2014, Hiro Miura began his latest business, Miura Guitars USA, Inc. after leaving his previous, long running business, Xotic Guitars he started in 1996. Hiro now creates instruments that are closer to their ideal form, closer to musicians with his new concept: "Never complete, keep evolving"."
