"Tiamat" 5 String Bass

Fanned fret bass with ebony body, Aguilar pickups

This black beauty fanned fret 5-string features an ebony top and fretboard, along with an "earth and moon" custom inlay in its body. It has been irresistable not to call it the "space bass" (not to be confused with Bootsy Collins' famous instrument). The bass was designed to be lightweight and to balance in seated position at about a 25-degree angle. The Aguilar pickups and preamp helped the bass sound huge and amazing, and imparted massive tonal options to this bass.
