a superb, stylish, solid-wood, electro-acoustic bass FROM THE CZECH REPUBLIC
Combining carefully selected tonewoods, innovative proprietary production technologies and refined, modern design, this striking solid Red Cedar/African Mahogany instrument delivers a masterful, rich and powerful naturally balanced tone.
This special, thin finish provides an excellent level of surface protection as well as enhancing the natural sonic qualities of the tonewoods, accentuating low frequencies and promoting the delivery of the instrument's natural woody sound.
Furch CNR System® Neck Joint
A high precision, dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows for fine bilateral adjustment of the neck relief. The truss rod is housed in a highly rigid carbon casing which enables a very smooth and controlled neck relief, ensuring the best playability and enduring optimal setup.
LR Baggs Active Element Pickup/Preamp System
Unlike typical under-saddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup is a flexible film sensor (only 2 thousandths of an inch thick) that picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances.
Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses “quack” caused by compression and unlocks the Element’s unrivaled dynamic range, faithfully reproducing the instrument’s acoustic voice
The pickup’s minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate, transparent coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
The pickup is combined with a discrete preamp inside the guitar and soundhole mounted volume and tone controls for easy access.
