A Minotaur 5 String Short Scale Bass Guitar with Piezo only pickups and a Macassar Ebony top - a new collaboration with Joe Veillette!

Working with Joe Veillette, I intentionally designed this bass to play fast and sound like nothing you have in your collection currently. I went with a just slightly shorter scale length of 33" to make it play ultra-fast without losing the clarity you usually hear with a 34" scale.


An ebony board and maple neck were used to keep the tone snappy, and the piezo-only electronics let you get tones anywhere from classic upright and acoustic bass sounds to zingy aggressive tone  that even sounds great with some distortion through it. 


Don't let the black tape wound strings fool you - this bass RIPS! Its as versatile as a P Bass and was intentionally designed as such. Bring her home before someone else does, this is a 1-off bass and we will not be making another.
