Marek Witkowski is the builder this week for this week’s feature bass guitar, the B5-35 Custom. And while the build keeps a simple, clean look, it’s packed with features (such as a compound radius fingerboard and having 26 frets).
Marek (firstname.lastname@example.org) writes:
This is custom built model. The B5-35 Custom specification is:
scale: 35” (889mm)
construction: neck thru
body: Swamp Ash
neck: 5x maple/ebony, reinforced with carbon fibre
fingerboard: maple radius: 12”-16”
frets: 26 Jumbo
controls: Preamp John East J-Retro 01 Deluxe
bridge: Hipshot (strings thru body)
tuners: Hipshot B6Y Ultralite
Note to those who didn’t see it: The thin block fret markers just above the 5 string are a very nice touch. Subtle, but does the job nicely.
Well done, Marek!
