Hey, my name is Jesse Wilson, I own Ish Guitars in Syracuse NY. I collaborated with Jens Ritter on this Ritter R8 Singlecut Concept "Zebrano" bass guitar which he displayed at NAMM 2020.

I got inspiration for this bass mainly from Ritter's R8 Singlecut Concept that is on display at the Boston Museum of Fine Art, with one dramatic change: the full-body-length Zebrano fingerboard. When was the last time you saw a Zebrano fretboard?!
This R8 isn't just art, though. She's fully playable and sounds absolutely killer. The pickup system is a custom-built bridge piezo that gives the bass fat, warm, and articulate tone, similar to a hollowbody or upright bass. I went for a 32" scale for ultra easy playability and fatter vintage hollowbody-type tone.
Check out our YouTube channel for a video of a similar bass we custom designed with Jens, a Ritter Princess Isabella concept, which will sound very similar to this one.
This bass is so sexy even your wife will want it in her living room. Email me with any questions!
