Featuring a lightweight - approximately 3kg - poplar body and ABS flame top construction, these bass guitars feature a compact build, making for easy transportation. The models also both feature a 30.32" scale-length, maple neck and 21-fret purpleheart fingerboard.

The main difference between each model is their respective pickup configurations. The 1H features one humbucker with series and parallel switching options, while the 2S features two single coil pickups.


"For instance" is not proof.

I've seen add for those. While I respect the adventurous choice of non-standard shapes & materials, especially purple heart for the fingerboard, I'm not drawn to it. Doesn't fit any of my needs. But I hope that it does work for others, and they have decent sales.

Two strap hooks on the bottom? Are they that heavy?

Maybe it's sort of a built-in stand so you can lean it up against the amp? :- D


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...

My Steinberger Synapse guitar has two strap buttons also. Indeed, the guitar stands up when you lean it against the wall....hooray! But also it sits better when you're using the lower (high string side) button, which wasn't what I thought would work before I tried it. So it does add function where you never really figured you'd need it. I'm a fan.

Surprised they went with such a short scale. I'd have used 32".

Things are just the way they are, and they're only going to get worse.

I also prefer 32" for a shorty bass, (or 32.5, even) but I can see the design team at work...
Neither sings to me, and I can envision potential materials differences that might be a factor.

Still, they don't look bad. wink



I'm a lot more like I am now than I was when I got here.
