    Unique Features
    This is a GREAT sounding wood combination -- and one that we do not get asked to build with too often! Walnut body, Alder Tone Block and a Birdseye Maple fingerboard. Wow. The Walnut body imparts a slightly warm, tight authority to the low-end with the Alder Tone Block adding just the right swell and bloom to each note. The Maple fingerboard adds some nice brightness but in a slightly warmer, rounded way than the bell-like tones we associate with Ebony (the fingerboard that we most commonly are asked to use with Walnut bodies).

    Oh, and the Redwood Burl top? Delicious!

    Yeah it's not the norm but it sounds incredible. It's quite tight and punchy in the lows and mids (thanks to the walnut body) and quite a warm sounding topend for a maple board, it's got some brightness to extract if you wish but there's a lot more to this bass.

    Very smooth slick sound, buttery.
