The Nick Silver Mr. Iggy pickups, together with the flexible four-position circuit, produce a wide range of crisp single-coil sounds. The pickups are inspired by the '51 P-Bass pickups.
The Alnico V magnets are blackened to give the short scale bass a distinctive look.
The switch offers four pickup combinations: Neck solo, neck and bridge parallel in-phase, bridge solo, neck and bridge parallel out-of-phase. The latter position produces a honky sound with very present midrange, which with its vintage vibe clearly cuts through the mix.
The switch for selecting the pickups is easy to grip and a scale shows the current position for better orientation. With a volume control and a global tone control, the desired sound is quickly found. The electronics compartment contains high-quality parts such as TAD Sprague Orange Drops or CTS pots.
Woods & Hardware
High-quality hardware such as the Schaller 3D Bass bridge, the weight-optimised HipShot Tuners or the handmade brass nut are explicitly selected and manufactured to ensure the best possible handling and ergonomics.
The body is made of three-piece alder. The neck is made of quarter-sawn European maple and a fingerboard of steamed oak.
The neck is treated with shellac and Odie's Oil. It is the perfect finish to bring out the beautiful grain of the wood while protecting the surface from moisture and dirt.
Last but not least, this bass has a very unique, custom-made, 2-ply Pickguard made of linoleum and a thin aluminium sheet. Linoleum is very resistant to scratches and it just looks and feels amazing.
