Brian May Bass Guitar
CastleRocks is proud to announce the latest – and lowest – addition to the world renowned Brian May Guitars product line.
The Brian May Bass is a ‘medium’ scale instrument, made in the same spirit as Brian’s ‘Old Lady’ 6 string guitar.
Is features a compact, bound mahogany body and 31.5” scale neck, topped with a 20 fret ebony fingerboard.
Tone is supplied by vintage-styled chrome-covered humbucking neck and rear-position single coil pickups hooked up to a classic, passive volume/volume/tone circuit.
Hardware comprises chrome high-mass roller-bridge, ‘Retro’ control knobs and state-of-the-art Hipshot tuners.
The ‘Bri Bass’ is strung with Bass Centre Elites Flatwound strings for super-smooth fundamentals and in-keeping with the classic Brian May styling it’s finished in a deep Cherry Red with a one-piece black scratchplate.
