The Motown Bass is a semi-hollow constructed bass featuring a solid centerblock and flat 35mm sides. This makes this big-body bass particularly easy to handle on stage.
Three of our own DS Alnico Blade pickups make this bass extremely versatile giving you the astonishing tonality of the past 50 years. Each pickup can be switched on and off individually.
A pleked fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.

Instruments we created in collaboration with artists around the world. Designed for their individual needs, but made for everyone.
Bent sides and glued on top and back. Added solid center block. The classic construction. Semi-Hollow instruments combine the distinct tone of a hollow construction with the feedback resistance of a solid body. Extremely versatile.
A solid body that features big sound chambers for enhanced tone and weight reduction. Particularly characteristic tone somewhere between a solid and semi-hollow construction.
Made from a single slab of wood. Delivers instant response, a lot of attack and sustain and perfect feedback resistance.
Full hollow construction for a lot of moving air and distinct classic tone and response. Exceptional tonal character that is well fitted for clean and crunch use.
