The Uberhorn bass achieves perfect balance, comfort and playability. Easy access to the upper frets and heavily carved contours and body, the extended upper horn means the bass doesn’t move around on the strap, less fatigue on the player.
Lightweight hardware keeps the weight of the bass down, as low as 7lbs. Highest quality hardware and pickups. Options on custom wound pickups from Aaron Armstrong and Mojo. Active preamps from John East, Aguilar, Seymour Duncan available in 2 and 3 band. All go together to produce a tonally versatile and expressive instrument.
A huge choice of figured and tone woods are available, master grade timbers that we have collected and stored over the past 25 years, to make each Uberhorn bass an individual and visually stunning instrument.
Available in all string formats and several scale lengths, nut widths and necks carved to customers requirements. Hardwearing stainless steel fret wire and brass nuts.
Necks are finished in gloss or satin lacquer for super smooth feel, bodies in polyester base coat and polyurethane topcoats, satin or gloss.
