Dear fellow low-enders, we are pleased to bring you the cream of the crop in Japanese hand made basses. We are a small family run MIJ bass collector and dealer based in Tokyo Japan we have been carrying Deviser instruments since we began just over a year ago and they are some of the best we have dealt with! STR are hand built at the ASKA plant in Nagano to the highest spec along side other Deviser brands like Bacchus, Momose and Headway. They are among the finest instruments in the world yet command a lower price than the likes of Fodera or US built Ken Smith for example. These instruments are not just amazing sounding and feeling instruments, they are also beautiful works of art Here's a few pics to put you in the mood The LS range are the most popular of the STR range, with the solid bolt on construction and deep neck pocket that makes for superb resonance and better sustain. The LS range can be ordered in 4 (LS449), 5(LS459), 6(LS648) or 7(LS748) string configurations. The spacing / string pitch at the bridge varies depending on number of strings. Specifically the 4 and 5 string models are 19mm, the 6 string and 7 string is 18mm. Prices start at $3000 and range up to $9000 depending on spec. We at Bass Japan Direct now have the ability to bring you these models factory direct at great prices! Please PM me for quotes or inquiries on available stock. Also please note that we offer shipping solutions which you can find out more about through PM inquiries.
