GUITARS & BASSES
Cool and Curvy
A five-string bass with rockabilly flavour, the Saruman is my last design in electric basses. The instrument depicted is the first of the series, with a body covered with perloid material, high-gloss transparent lacquer and details in black and red (the pickups and the fingerboard's wood).
It is equipped with a KSM "Foundation" bridge, a piece of clever design made of aluminium with a brillinat transference of sound: no matter the setup of the saddles, they always are in full contact with the base of the bridge: no vibrations of the saddle, no rattle, awesome sustain.
Body: Maple / celluloid
Neck: High quality birdseye maple / Mahagoni stripes
Fretboard: Purplewood, stainless steel frets, mother-of-pearl dot inlays
Pickups: Q-Tuner Neodym 5-string pickups
Active "Noll" electronics (made in Germany): Master volume (active/passive with push/pull switch), blender, 3-way equalizer, 3-way toggle switch.
