The Singlecut is ergonomically designed with a semi-curve top and heavy rear carving to make a very comfortable bass with no restrictions on playability. The upper bout continues to around the 12th fret and is carved at the rear to maintain a slim neck profile. The added stability this adds to the neck means the lower bout can be carved in deeper to allow access to up to 26 frets and couple to the laminated and carbon fibre reinforced neck achieves a noticeable increase in sustain and harmonic content.
The headstock is a scarf joint (as on the Uberhorn) and made from the same wood as the body, faced front and rear with veneers to match the figured semi-curve top.
A large choice of fretboards from the usual maples and rosewoods to the more exotic, macassar ebony, palm wood, cocobolo to name a few.

Options on custom wound pickups from Aaron Armstrong and Mojo. Active preamps from John East, Aguilar, Seymour Duncan available in 2 and 3 band. The sum of these parts is a unique and expressive bass, a wealth of tones.
