Ares NCB

Ares NCB, New Construction Bass, is the latest instrument in the family. It has a laminated neck of 9 pieces for the 5-string and 11 pieces for the 6-string, same as DCBNT. On each side of the truss rod is a carbon fibre rod to increase the stabilty of the neck.

The neck goes inside the body all the way to the bridge. It gives an increadible tone and a long sustain. The upper horn of the body goes back to the neck which increase the sustain. The body is as standard made of mahogany with a carved maple top.

As standard this bass comes with chrome hardware and mattish laquer. Delano pickups as standard but there is a lot of options. Call for prices.
