With handpicked clock cogs and wheels strategically inlaid within its Eastern poplar body, the beautifully made Vintage V96 ProShop Unique Steam Punk 4-string active bass guitar, really is a unique work of art.
To highlight the steam punk theme, many hours have been spent configuring brass and steel cogs to fit within the hand-routed, open-bodied cavities. Stunning visual appointments also include an expertly applied cellulose Inca silver finish with a clear top coat and subtly applied bronze clear tint, aged chrome hardware, a hand-built high-grade brass scratchplate and brass Volume, Bass, Middle and Treble Controls with individual cog designed caps.
Whilst the steampunk aesthetics are visually stunning, this beautifully constructed model is certainly not powered by clockwork. A Wilkinson Platinum Series pickup at the bridge, features single-coil and double coil facilities within one unit. With four core wiring and active circuitry, this pickup alone, is sonically, the perfect match to the Eastern poplar body, delivering an enormous range of original and modern bass tones.
With supreme playability, exceptional tone and stunning visual appointments, the Vintage ProShop Steam Punk Silver/Bronze, 4 string active bass guitar, is a real winner wherever you perform, at home, in the studio or on the world’s biggest stage
