Chris’s story about the bass

The Syra bass has a bolt-on maple neck attached to a poplar body, in this case finished in baby blue silk lacquer. The three pickups look the same but contain, from the neck to the bridge, a deep reggae style humbucker, a P-Bass style humbucker and a guitar P90 (which makes a great bridge pickup for a bass). Controls are volume and tone with a 5 way selector that gives 5 different voicings – it is so versatile that it doesn’t need any active circuitry. Sometimes less is more!
