The world’s finest carbon fiber Bass
The bass is a ¾ bass and weighs about 19 pounds.
The string length is 41½ inches. It has a swell back and is comprised of a one piece back, sides and neck; the second piece is the top and the third is the fingerboard. It is a “free adaptation” of the bass Luis thinks is the best in the Boston Symphony, an Antonio Roca bass. It is a bit asymmetrical in the upper bout, making it easier to play. It has Rubner nickel tyrolean style tuners.
The bass has a robust sound and can go from zero
degrees into a hot dry room or to a hot humid
country and not lose it’s sound, not crack nor
have it’s neck come loose.
