Heron Bass

$ 2,800.00 CAD

The Heron bass features neck through construction and can come in 4 or 5 string options.

The controls come standard with a 3 way mini toggle, 1 vol, 1 blend and bass/treble EQ with stock active Fishman Fluence pickups.  If you would like the controls changed to your liking please feel free to inquire.

The neck profile of the Heron Bass has a C profile with 21 mm @1st fret tapering to 24mm@ 12th with a deep cut into the body giving you full access to that 24th fret.

The Heron has a 3x2 or 2x2 headstock configuration with Ratio Y tuners from Graph Tech. The Heron has a tilted headstock at 10 degrees - different than the paddle headstocks of the Oswego and Quadra.

Guitars take a minimum 8-10 weeks to build. All guitars ship with a gig bag or hardshell case unless otherwise requested. Customers are responsible for paying import duties in their respective states. International shipping available.

Due to the nature of guitar building I may have my hands covered in glue or a few inches from a bandsaw blade.

It is best to email me with any questions and I will get back to you within 2 business days at the latest.
