Straight II - a reissue of Marleaux's late 90s bestseller. Still in a very straight outfit but with new designed pick ups with a lot of punch. In combination with the new choice of woods, this leads to a very direct and powerfull rock sound.
• two dibetou (one of the many types of mahogany) body
• one piece maple neck, bolt on
• bird's eye maple fingerboard fingerboard
• Marleaux singlecoil/humbucker (with coilsplitting) pick up configuration. Big alnico pole pieces,
• Active/passive 3-band EQ
This bass has a truly amazing low B, especially considering it has a traditional 34" scale.
Harmonics jump out of the bass , and it is easy to go from a deep, quasi traditional tone, to a modern HIFI sound, and also an addictive growl that makes you play the bass non stop.
This bass is a perfect example of vintage warm tones in a modern designed instrument that is just beautiful, lightweight (3'5 Kg in this case) and has a neck to die for.
