The Ceruti Model Bass has a two piece top of fine seasoned European Medium Grain Spruce, and the swelled back is a two piece sectional of highly seasoned European slab cut Poplar with slight figure. The ribs are of matching character Poplar to that of the back, and the neck and scroll are both carved from a single piece of moderate figured maple. The varnish is a reddish brown color, antiqued in nature. The gears are Tyrolean wooden knobbed individual brass tuners. This bass offers an "old world" quality of sound with great depth and projection in all registers. Set up with Pirastro Evah strings, high quality French bridge with built in adjusters, and an ebony tailpiece with kevlar rope tailwire for openness and power.
Instruments are set up at the time of order and require approximately 5-10 days to be professionally set up and adjusted.
