Vintage 51 Bass
Vintage 51 brings back the Fifties!
I always liked Leo´s first Precision, but I thought about a practival 21 century version for today´s players! So we got to work. We had to enlarge the scratchplate to take all the controls. In fact we had the 1956 version in mind as that one had already the rounded edges and contour shapings. However, if someone wants a slab body, we can do it! We can also do the very early version with a single coil pickup and two knobs on a control plate!
This one has Hot Wire Funderbucker Pickups, Hipshot Hardware and U-Retro Elektronics...so: ultra Vintage looks combined with Hot Wire sound and handling!
The body is made of alder, but can be swamp ash or even mahogany. Matte or hi-gloss finish.
Necks are maple, rosewood or ebony.
Schaller or Hipshot hardware. Passive or active electronics to order!
We make them in three scales:
Long Scale 864 mm[
Medium Scale 820 mm
XXL Scale 915 mm
Our "Deep Impact" will do it to you! XXL scale for a thight sound, Glockenklang 3Band for simple but effecive sound design.
