After comparing many old basses from the 50’s and 60’s, and together with the input from many players, an idea began to form in my mind of what Soulmate should be. For that vintage vibe, a wide neck was essential. The wide neck fights back, but at the same time it lends a helping hand so you can focus on groove, timing, phrasing, and coloring.
And to me, this is the soul of bass playing.
