3-STRINGS ARE BLACK ENOUGH ...


I am a person of unconventional ways, and I wanted to get my fingers fit again without much physical therapy. So I decided in early 2018 to practice my fingers on the bass. I rewarded myself with great success and had a unique bass made by Bert Gerecht (Hotwire Bass). Have fun.

 

 

FUNDERBIRD 3

We go with the customer through his wish list, and set all design points. Basically, it makes sense that the three-string neck width has four-string dimensions, so the neck does not feel like a broomstick and the sound is fat enough. Of course, you get a big string spacing, and you can really dig in.

 

 

  • ALL SPECIAL

    The bridge consists of three individual riders, and the proven FunderBuckers are wound for the trio spacing. Simple passive vol-vol-tone electronics were requested.

  • BLACK IS BLACK

    For the overall dark look, we have chosen an ebony fingerboard, which also gives a bright and snappy Sound.

  • NECK JOINT

    We have opted for the six-way bolt and also located the strap lock here.

  • TRANSPORTATION

    In order to get to the gig in one piece, we got a matching flight case made.

  • READY

    A few details: Khaya mahogany body, maple neck with ebony board and jumbo frets. Hipshot tuners, Pyramid Stainless Steel Strings (Low B - E - A), and a high-gloss finish in piano quality. The back of the neck is painted matte black, so the fretting hand can slide effortlessly.
