Who wins the award for the weirdest looking guitars? Well, Strandberg, of course! But what about basses? We must admit that Strandberg would undoubtedly earn this hypothetical title too with their new line of multi-scale basses. But why are their shapes and designs so unconventional? Their main reason is ergonomics, and if you know the definition of “ergonomic” and you’ve ever held one of these basses you will know exactly what we mean.
These basses are design with comfort and playability in mind; the cut of the body and the very noticeable light weight play a major role here. Their multi-scale design, including fanned frets, also add a lot to the beautiful low end of the basses’ tone. Julia explains it quite well in the video below:
Available in 4-string or 5-string models, Brown or Natural
