This is a new bass from luthier Imanol Egilegor who is based in Okamika, Vizcaya.
We've been selling Egilegor basses for some time and we are happy to report that these basses are better than ever.
This model is the Biadar (meaning double cutaway) 5 string and 24 frets and in this case the body is made from swamp ash and there's a matching headstock. The neck is a made from maple and a nice piece of Indian Rosewood is used for the . There are side dot inlays and these will glow in the dark. Really cool! We love the shape and the cool color.
Regarding electronics, Imanol builds his own pickups in house and the truth is they sound terrific. In this case this bass comes with a set of neodynium humbuckers in Jazz shape. You get 100% noise free operation and a very full and clear sound. Each pickup produces a very distinct type of sound and the blend of both is perfect.
But wait, there's more: electronics are Aguilar OBP-3 so you get excellent performance, low noise and 3 band EQ with 400/800Hz midrange selection (push-pull mid control). There's also a Passive tone that works both in Passive and Active so there's plenty of possibilities on tap here.
