NBD: Unicornbass custom 5-string! (56k warning)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by The_Owl, Apr 25, 2010.


  1. Pics of my new bass that I got today, built by Swedish luthier Christian Olsson of Unicornbass. It is an Artist 2010 bass, mahogany body, koa top, maple/purpleheart neck and rosewood board. 4-band preamp with QUAD pickups (s/hb/s switching for each).

    I wish I was good enough to THINK about buying something like that.

    I was just looking at this in the Custom Wait Support thread. Looks great, and I'm sure sounds and feels just as good. Play it in good health, and for God's sake man, post some clips! :D
     
  5. THATS JAW DROPPING!
     
  6. Clips will come in two weeks, with a proper camera! ;)
     
  7. Thanks. Check out his webpage, there's a LOT more where this came from ;)

    Classy, I really like that body shape.
     
  10. Thanks and you will! (in two weeks when I have broken it in)

    To demonstrate how stable the neck is, how about this:
    Would you believe me if I said we didn't touch the trussrod when adjusting? Just slapped on the strings, lowered the saddles a bit and there it was.

    Your bass looks great as well Chuck!
     
  11. Thanks. Christian's own design, a re-design from last year's model.
     
  12. I find that Bass supremely attractive, can you PM me how much it set you back?
     
  13. I would love to, but the price is a price of confidence between me and Christian. I'm afraid you will have to mail him directly. He usually answers very fast.

    Sorry!:bawl:;)
     
  14. Usually the "PM me the price" thing clovers the "confidential price" thing.
     
  15. Yeah, but this goes beyond that. It's confidential for everyone by my promise to him.

    Incredible.
     
  17. Does he speak English?
     

  18. Certainly. He lived and worked in England for many years.
     
  19. Good, I would hate to have to learn Swedish.
     
  20. I would even call him by telephone. His computer just broke down, and he hasn't been answering mails as quick as usual.
