Pleased to meet you.

A new design with a rich sound and a not ordinary look. The one-piece body made of Khaya mahogany with oil-wax surface seal sets the basis for a round tone. The likewise waxed stapelt mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard is bolted six times - this contributes to the fat sound. Hipshot hardware is standard. To accentuate the extravagant look, the Schoengeist was equipped with handmade pickguards by Alperious from Istanbul.


The powerful W-Bucker pickup, developed in cooperation with Bassculture, already offers three distinctly different sounds in passive mode with "serial-parallel-single coil". The Splitcoil 1/2 W-Bucker on the neck adds more fat sound.

Even the passive mode delivers a rich all-round sound, and switching to the bridge pickups, you have the most beautiful walking bass tone you can imagine.

The East Uni-Pre 5K tone control with active parametric control offers everything from the round jazz or ultra-deep reggae sound to a crisp slap sound. The first button is the master volume, the second button is the balance for the two pickups, the third button is the active / passive push / pull control and responsible for the passive tone, which also works in active mode.

The first double pot controls the highs and the bass, the second stack knob is the parametrics, here you can set all known bass sounds. In the electronics compartment, the bassist has the opportunity to tune the effect of bass and treble controls individually.

Of course, this bass can also be ordered with other pickup configurations and a tone control as desired, even as a five-string, with a thru-neck, 24 frets or as fretless.
