This bass model was created during a period in which I was strongly influenced by the idea that the body of a bass should not only have a top made from exotic wood, but also should the back. I made it my mission to develop a design for this 4 string bass guitar with a modern and contemporary appearance. I must admit that it wasn’t easy, but after several variations of the model, I finally arrived at one that was perfect in form and proportion.

LED lights: This feature is an achievement which took a lot of energy and hard work. The main goal was to develop two coloured lights (red and blue) that would work in synchrony, which was a challenge that my friend, Georgi Vlaev, solved in a fantastic way. He developed a pure analog 9V preamp that the LED lights require. The preamp works smoothly. Most important – it does not generate noise or frequencies that could disturb the work of the pickups or the EQ preamp.
