Build for Tocotronic’s bass player Jan Müller, we customized our electric layout according to Jan’s personal specs. Jan wished a more simple slider switch layout: each single slider switch puts on each individual pickup following the visual pattern from left to right out of the players perspective. So, we had to move the piezo, especially as the toggle switch became somewhat questionable after Jan’s idea.
Built from yellow poplar, maple, and rosewood, this bass delivers all tones well known of a good recipe. Our reverse headstock design delivers the missing fundamental notes especially on the thicker strings. Jan is very happy, and Tocotronic’s lower frequencies never sounded better.
This bass will be custom made for you.
Building time is currently 12 months.
