Boutique basses Handmade in England. Revolutionary design of electro-acoustic bass guitars. Includes hard case. Call us for best price. Features

Revolutionary design of electro-acoustic bass guitars

Patented body construction redefines convention

Unique contoured body profiling for a new level of player comfort

Controllable action and string height with adjustable bridge and nut

Precision engineered frame enabling patented through body stringing which aids sustain and enhances natural tone

Custom designed pre-amp control provides the simplicity of one mixer and individual volume controls for neck pick up and transducer, allowing a wide range of tonal variation

High-end third party components include Hipshot lightweight tuning keys, Bareknuckle neck pick up, bespoke Rotosound stringing, and Schatten transducers
Manufactured using a range of indigenous hardwoods from sustainable and reclaimed sources

The preamp uses precision op-amps with each input configuration selected to match the characteristics of the magnetic and piezo pickups. Detailed design ensures optimum balance between low noise and battery consumption.

A moderated level of amplification is used to maximise signal to noise ratio ensuring standard amplifier compatibilitywithout overloading. Filters and tone control terms optimise the response to the bass guitar frequencies.

Active tone controls at the mid setting provide a flat frequency response, counter clockwise rotation boosts bass and cuts treble, clockwise rotation has the opposite effect.

The frequency around which this rotation point occurs has been selected to match the instrument acoustics.

This simplicity of using one tonal control plus individual volume controls for each pick up allows an extensive range of tonal variation.

Please note that we have a Mk1 version of the bass available for demo which does not have the transducer. We can of course obtain ANY Gillett bass direct.
