HOLLOWBODY CARVED TOP SERIES

Hollowbody front

The Hollowbody Carved Top sits along side our long established Expression and is constructed with body cavities on either side of a centre block which, in turn, holds a fixed (glued) neck joint and fully adjustable wooden bridge, set into a shallow route on the carved top front of the bass and strung ‘through body’ via extended ferrule inserts set into the rear of the body.

The unique design results in an instrument that is supremely articulate.

A surprisingly lightweight instrument – the chambered body providing a resonant voice with a great balance of depth and clarity, whilst the carved top adds a tactile feel and elegant aesthetic.

The Hollowbody is available in either “Full Depth” or “Thinline” versions, and with the option of either a pair of twin coil magnetic pick-ups or a combination of magnetic or piezo.

AVAILABLE IN BOTH FULL DEPTH AND THINLINE EDITIONS
