    Godlyke, Inc. is proud to introduce their latest "supreme creation" – the Deity 10-String Bass. Featuring a light-gauge 5-string arrangement (tuned B to G) with matching octave strings, the Deity-10 offers an extended frequency range simply not found on other instruments. Designed for today’s extreme musician, the Deity-10 is the perfect instrument for the adventurous player who is more interested in breaking ground than re-treading it.

    Tonally, the Deity-10 is in a class all its own. Bridging the gap between the low-end and the upper registers, the Deity-10 offers a massive foundation that no other instrument can match. Thunderous, punchy bottom with ringing sustained harmonics create a wall of sound that will make your rhythm guitarist obsolete, or allow you to forego a guitarist altogether (just ask John Paul Jones)! From chiming, chorused clean sounds to overdriven thunder, the Deity-10 can handle it all. [Read More]
