The Ascendant - A sleek and sophisticated instrument set to rise to the top echelon of both modern and traditional design. Cutting slim line aesthetics and an offset shape ensure the bass is lightweight, comfortable and balances perfectly.

A 6 string bass with a set neck construction. The three woods used are : Yew, Walnut and Wenge. Black accent veneers have also been used at the headstock and neck joint to add some contrast.

The neck is a 3 piece of Walnut and Wenge with a light oil finish giving a nice natural feel to it. The 24 fret Wenge fingerboard features both wooden block inlays and binding, both of which are Yew to tie in with the main colours of the bass.

The slim Yew body has some great character to it which is quite typical of Yew, with some knots here and there and great figure all over. It also features some nice flowing carves which not only look beautiful but also improve comfort. On the rear of the bass a wooden cavity lid of Walnut and Wenge compliment the neck woods nicely.

Simple passive volume and tone controls paired with the Delano Xtender pickup provide a voice of clarity with great sustain.

The bridge is made by ABM in Germany and features adjustable string spacing, to help you find your perfect setup.
