This is a new bass from luthier Imanol Egilegor who is based in Okamika, Vizcaya.

We've been selling Egilegor basses for some time and we are happy to report that these basses are better than ever.

This model is the Adarbakar (meaning double cutaway) 5 string and 24 frets and in this case as you can see, it is a multiscale design.

Multiscale means that each string has a different lenght, following the same principle as that on grand pianos. In this case it goes from 32" on the G string to 35" on the low B. A lower string needs to be longer to produce the notes clearly, but at the same time a treble string does benefit from a slightly shorter scale. The bridge and nut are mounted accordingly and so are the frets (this is called fanned fret). Even though this looks a bit unusual when you first test it, the truth is that you don't have to adjust your technique at all.

The body is made from hollowed out cherrywood with a cool spalted maple top  matching headstock. The neck is a made of maple. Pau Ferro is also used for the fingerboard. Really cool! We love the shape and the cool color. Of course there are dots on the side for you to know where you are at all times and these will glow in the dark.

Regarding electronics, Imanol builds his own pickups in house and the truth is they sound terrific. In this case there we have two humbucker pickups mounted on a ramp and a rather clever switching system that allows you to select any of the coils when you are in Single Coil mode (sort of 60's or 70's Jazz Bass so to speak). When you select Humbucker mode, you get the choice of Series or Parallel. Now, that's versatile.

But wait, there's more: electronics are Aguilar OBP-3 so you get excellent performance, low noise and 3 band EQ with 400/800Hz midrange selection (push-pull mid control). There's also a Passive tone (again Push-Pull for Active-Passive operation) that works both in Passive and Active so there's plenty of possibilities on tap here.
