The SRSC's extended upper horn between the 13th and 24th frets far exceeds, in terms of performance, the traditional connection between the instrument's neck and body.
Purpleheart produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
Sculpted for comfort and easy access to the upper frets, the smooth graceful contour allows the palm of the left hand to move quickly and easily as it transitions up and down the neck.
The combination of Maple/Purpleheart is as musical and it is durable. These two extremely dense materials offer the foundation of great sustain.
The Mono-rail V is the ultimate bridge for bass string isolation. Each bridge is independently and securely locked down to the body for maximum vibration transfer without interference.
The MK1 pickups are split coil designs that provides a very wide frequency range and enhanced definition for maximum accuracy. The Neck and Bridge pickups have equal response, like traditional single coils, but without the hum and noise.
Precision tonal control, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypasses activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
