Luddite 6 String Bass #720

Please call 773.489.4830 or email to discuss details and make arrangements for your commission.


This instrument serves as an intermediary between long scale bass players and guitar players. The neck is relatively wide, but it’s still comfortable enough to play with the shorter scale length. You have a high C and a low B, and it’s really stable with the magnificent Kahler 6 string bass vibrato. Custom machined hipshot mini tuners have been adapted to function on it’s oversized slotted headstock. The tonal circulation of this thing is massive, and it resembles the tonality of Specimens earlier aluminum basses. Somewhere in the realm of a Steinway piano being hit with a ball peen hammer.

There was a trend in the mid 90’s to wear a shirt, suit coat, slacks and tie all the same color. It was the thing, and every sharp dude in town was going monochromatic. The selection of wood species is along the same line of thinking with the Macassar Ebony over Mahogany motif flowing from tip to tail.

Don’t miss this chance to own a very rare sonic opportunity for both the dapper and disheveled!
