special request

Need a three string bass? Or a fretless with 4 octave neck? Everything is possible - if you envision that special bass that no-one else has, check us out! 

We will provide advice in our Hot Wire Studio, or on the phone (06753/94571), and an idividual pricing. Each Hot Wire Custom Bass is a one-off.

Three strings...

Built for Magnum Coltrane Price from the Nils Landgren Funk Unit. Swamp Ash Body, Maple Neck, Ebony board with jumbo frets, phat black nylon strings, matte black finish, Hot Wire Pickups, Schaller machines  and ABM Bridge. Magnum requested same neck width as his trusty Hot Wire fourstring... We intgegrated his DOD Envelope Follower right into the bass, with three knobs, one mini switch and a red LED.

Three strings! Tuned C-F-Bb.... "Less strings, more bass," Magnum raves.
