Here's a new model in the Maruszczyk range of basses. It has been named Sputnik and it is the first singlecut design from this European brand.
This particuar bass sports a 32" medium scale and comes with standard BEADG tuning, proving that you can get a loud and deep low B without the need of a long scale. If you have small hands or want to use extended positions you'll love this scale which in combination with the 16.5mm spacing at the bridge make for a really special instrument. What's more, if you prefer tenor tuning (EADGC), it is as simple as getting the right strings and setting the bass up for correct intonation. No need to change the nut as the zero fret will take care of that.
The set in neck and special design lower horn make it very easy to reach the 24th fret.
As you can see in the pictures, this is also a beautiful bass. It comes with a amboia burl top and matching headstock as well as pickup covers and a blank ebony fingerboard with side dots only. Irresistible! It is also a llight weight bass that balances really well and there's no neck diving here thanks to the Hipshot Ultralite tuners.
Two powerful Bassculture humbuckers capture the sound of this bass and you get individial Single Coil/Series/Parallel switches, meaning you get a lot of great sounds. There's a Treble roll off in Passive mode (the first part of the Treble pot takes care of this) plus 3 band EQ in Active mode.
What's really interesting about Maruszczyk basses is that you get a bass with an excellent value for money (nobody is offering this quality for this price, honest) and you can also decide the specs of your personal bass, just like any other Custom Shop bass but with a really short build up time of just 8 weeks and an amazingly low price tag. There's no upcharge for the custom process (the final price of course depends on the specs themselves), and this also sets Maruszczyk basses apart from the rest.
