A-BS (Bass Sloped)

A book matched 2-piece solid body (usually in Mahogany) with a nice figured 3mm top that is “sloped” down where your right arm sits for a maximum playing comfort. Additionally both cutaways are rounded up into the top which makes playing in the highest frets very comfortable.
The back edges are well rounded and the “belly curve” helps to have the guitar nicely sit in position when played on a strap.
This bass comes with either one or two German Bass Bar Humbuckers in Ebony with Master Volume/Tone controls and a 3-way switch of there are two pick-ups.

Pick-up options

 

 

The High-End Häussel Bass Bar Humbucker is a super versatile Bass pick-up which will fit in nicely into any music style when adjusted accordingly. It will reach from a very punchy modern sound to a warm fat grumble. The Bass Bar is a splittable Humbucker which means it can be switched between a Humbucker, Single Coil or as Double Single Coil sound. So even with one pick-up there is quite the variety of sounds possible, especially along with the tone control pot. With two of them installed you get even a lot more sound variations plus slapping will be much easier.

The standard wiring with one Bass Bars installed is with one master Volume and Tone control with an additional three way switch for Humbucking, Single Coil Double Single Coil sound.
For the double bass bar the typical wiring would one master Volume and one push-pull Tone control (for splitting the Humbuckers) and one three way switch for selecting the bridge, neck or both positions.

Custom set-ups are all possible on request.
