Custom 10-String Bass
August 2012
Custom 10-String Bass
This is the second bass built for Italian artist Alberto Vigano, a brilliant ERB player. The bass was done to offer a different tone than his first one, and this was accomplished with all three elements- construction, woods, and electronics. The body is chambered as much as it can be in such a design, and black limba is used to enhance the woody depth of the tone. The neck uses a large amount of peruvian black walnut, which gives a warmer tone than maple. The pickups are custom made full humbuckers from Aero, and are wired to be split for more tonal options. They are matched up with a 4 band Pope Flexcore for ultimate fexibility.
