The Only Way To fly
We have created the first custom Headless for a customer who needs to take up little space, because he often flies around the world and always wants to have his Tribe with him.
This bass was so successful that we decided to include it in our catalog.
This Headless is not a common bass!
An incredible sound, unprecedented versatility for a passive bass, perfect ergonomics and unparalleled playability.
You'll feel your left hand flying fast on the fingerboard with 16" radius, without any neck dive.
The comfortable quarter sawn maple neck, with a D shaped profile, thin and reinforced with two graphite rods, is fast, and thanks to the perfect combination with the ergonomic body, it helps to make of this bass, a well balanced instrument.
The slight body will make you feel at ease from the first moment you wear this bass.
The precious Maple fingerboard, enriched with Black Block markers and Graphtech nut, elegantly incorporates the spoke wheel nut truss rod adjustment at the body.
The powerful Alnico 5 pickups are very dynamic, warm and defined and offer nuances suitable for any musical genre.
Thanks to the Tribe Dual Coil system at the bridge, which allows you to use only the single coil in 1960 position, only the one in 1970 position or both, like a humbucker, combined with the split coil at the neck, this Tribe offers 7 different sounds in a single instrument, a record for a passive bass.
A wide range of sounds but a few simple controls.
The Tribe hardware is absolutely fantastic, thanks to the individual saddles that allow you to adjust with absolute precision string height and pitch, they are very soft to operate when it is necessary to tune the instrument. The headpiece is also made to use standard strings, not double ball strings.
