Soulmate Sage Green relic: 2930 euro
Classic P sounds from this gorgeous Soulmate.
The body is alder, the neck is maple and the fingerboard zizicote. Ziricote is very similar to rosewood in sound, but more attractive to the eye. The pickup is Aguilar.
I have made this bass as 1 of 3 of a series of 3 identical basses. All materials used are the same, except for body wood. The reason is that I wanted to experiment with lighter woods for the body and then be able to determine in what way body wood influences the sound. This will help me to advise customers in wood choice. We have made a cool video with Glenn Gaddum jr to demo these 3 basses.
This particular bass has an alder body, and is therefore the reference bass to the other 2. It weighs 3.9 kg. It sounds and plays great. The color is Sage Green. It has a mild relic finish. I like the feel and looks of mild aging.
