The history and reason behind the creation of this custom bolt-on bass, Saturn – M. Nestorov signature bass can only be told by Mr. Nestorov himself.
“Since I was a child I dreamed about precision-style basses inspired by Steve Harris. On the other hand, the distinct sound of the MM-style basses always attracted me. I have numerous basses, which in and of themselves are good, but still something was missing. The variety of style with which I play left me in need of a bass that would allow me to play from Rock to Metal without having to change basses on stage. I visited many music shops, tried a number of basses, but nothing impressed me.
Fate was shining on me when it introduced me to Kostadin Dimitrov (KD). We succeeded in making my dream a reality and integrated two different bass sounds (Precision and MM) into one bass, combined with the convenience of having a comfortable neck. Of course, having all of this “Made by the hands of KD” – what else could a person want?”
