I love the deep growl and heart thumping, driving power of the bass so decided to add a low B string.
It has been observed that when a low B string is added to the traditional 34" scale bass guitar the low B can sound rather "mushy" and not as crisp or well defined as the other higher 4 strings. By extending the scale length to 35" and recalculating individual fret spacing, the problem is remedied. 36" is also an alternative but may be too challenging for smaller hands.
This Bass would be of my own design and constructed of Bubinga species wood with maple and rosewood again with an ebony fingerboard. The bass is a 'neck thru body' design in construction meaning that the body and neck are continuous and the neck is not attached to the body by screws or bolts.
Passive Gotoh pickups and bridge was used with Schaller tuning heads and straplocks.
Maple stock for neck lies diagonally in front of exotic species.
Fingerboard still needs to be contoured (radius added)
