Deep 5 Paduk Fretless Bass. This Deep 5 model (strung low E to high C) features a semi-hollow alder body, with a Paduk “drop top”. The vibrant color of the wood is 100% natural, no dies or stains have been used. This bass has special honey comb type chambers that make it very lightweight, and at the same time rigid, which helps the high C string to speak evening and clearly throughout the entire range. The top is thin (1/8”) and wraps around the generous arm contour on the body. The 34” scale neck is from eastern rock maple with rosewood strips; the 5 piece laminate construction makes a for a very stable and even sounding neck. I make the scale at 34” for basses with a high C string, as this scale length is a touch warmer sounding than 35”. In addition, La Bella makes the C strings to my custom spec with added silk in the winding, which produces a fuller sound, so that when you play through the full range of the bass, the character stays the same as you go into the high range. The fingerboard and matching bridge are from ebony. A locally made (in Los Angeles) form fit case rounds out the package.
