Echo Mk1I Bass

Clearly inspired by the classic lines of the Telecaster guitar, but refined and "modernized" for the 21st Century. Giving a more dynamic, curvy and ever so slightly more aggressive look. It features a single handwound pickup made by Armstrong Pickups at the Stingray sweet spot, which delivers all the growl you would expect for a Ray but with passive electronics. There is a also a (CTS) push pull pot fitted as standard to split the pickup for more tonal variety.

This model features a 32" scale, which in my opinion offers all the benefits of a standard scale (34") with the added benefit of being a little more comfortable (for both reach and stretching). This slightly shorter scale also ensures the bass balances well on the strap.

Please see the gallery below for different versions of this model and see our Facebook page for the build progress.

Please remember, any of our models can be specified with a different number of strings, scale length, frets, pickups or anything else for that matter! Also we offer the option for you to design your very own unique guitar or bass with your own body shape and specifications.
