Handmade bass by Spanish luthier Jaime Catalá Redondo located in Denia-Alicante.
Bolt On Jazz Bass design. 34" scale, BEADG tuning.
Jaime Catalá has been building basses and guitars for more than 20 years now and is one of the best luthiers in Spain. He has different models, some of which are based on some other well known basses but with a twist and some of his own specs and appointments.
This is an exceptional instrument where no corners have been cut. It is extremely comfortable to play and sounds wonderfully vintage.
Two excellent Delano Single Coil pickups are used. Electronics are 100% passive. Coupled with a 20 fret neck and traditional pickup location you get a sound that reminds of classic basses with with extra punch and clarity.
To sum up, an excellent handmade bass that not only looks gorgeous but it plays and sounds fantastic too.
This is a used bass but it's been completely refurbished by the luthier so it plays and sounds just like a new JCR. Frets have been leveled and polished so very low action is possible.
