Quadra Bass

$ 2,500.00 CAD

The Quadra bass offers a familiar body shape and layout but with all of the modern amenities. A long upper horn deters neck dive and the short lower horn gives the player full access to the frets they paid for. A slim body keeps the weight down and the straight string pull optimizes tuning stability.

The Quadra is a great option for those who want to pursue a vintage look but benefit from modern hardware. Stock with Fluence soapbar pickups and top loaded onto pickguard, the Quadra is a great platform to try different control platforms without having to structurally alter your bass. We're happy to cut a new pickguard with your new controls to swap from standard to custom controls.

The Quadra has a paddle headstock parallel to the body - different than the tilted headstocks of the MKIII, Sigil and Heron.

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.
