Ares DCBNT, Double Cutaway Bass Neck Thru, became a hit in the middle of the 90's. It has a laminated neck of 9 pieces for the 5-string and 11 pieces for the 6-string. The sound of these basses are very solid and tight. Deep powerful bottom and chrystal clear top. The sustain is long and the attack is brutal.
As standard this bass comes with chrome hardware and oilfinish. EMG-pickups as standard but there is a lot of options. Call for prices.
