KD REV II 5-String Multi-scale headless bass was custom made for Robert Atanasov. It was for Robert that I made one of the first REV II 4-string basses years ago. This time he wanted something different and more challenging in design. Our emphasis was on the construction of the neck-trough, which is formed with Bulgarian wood – sought after not only for its sound quality, but also for its impressive appearance.
Another important element of the project was that the bass be a 5-string and that the 5th string (B) embody a deep, tight and defined sound. In order to accomplish this we went with a 34”-37” Multi-Scale. There was no hesitation, however, when it came to choosing the electronic components and the hardware because ABM Hardware, Haeussel pickups and NOLL Electronics have proven to be of superior quality time and time again.
The body of the guitar has undergone some modifications which greatly contribute to its pleasing appearance, making it somewhat different from the original – Robert and I were pleased with the result and I hope you like it too.
