master series custom 6


   This was a unique Master build due to the exposed neck-thru construction. The most important detail about this bass is the full 19mm spacing at the bridge on a 6-string. This is the most effortless feeling neck I've experienced on a spacing this wide. The neck-thru and 35" scale give a nice clear fundamental for the lowest notes, while the alder body and electronics give a good punchy attack. Specifications:

35" scale, 24 frets (medium jumbo)

19mm @ the bridge

2.2" width @ the nut
