Italian custom shop guitar and bass manufacturer Overload Guitars & Basses have announced a new bass model under the name Taurus. The 4-string bass sports Swamp Ash body with Flamed Bubinga top in natural matt finish, 7-ply Maple/Bubinga/Wenge neck with Resin fingerboard, and a set of Northstrand pickups: MM4 (bridge) and NJ4-70 (neck). For full specs and photos see below.
“The base model can be customised according to customer’s specifications and is available in different woods and pickups configuration, what ultimately makes it viable for any kind of music,” say from the Overload Guitars & Bases headquarters based in Rome.
Taurus comes with a flat D neck for a faster and comfortable playing and carbon reinforcement and seasoned wood make its stability on a very high level. The bass is currently available in a 4-string version, but it will also be made in 5-string and 6-string versions as well.
