New Carcassi Elite Bass

October 3, 2015

We have another  rounded back Carcassi copy from the Calin Wultur workshop.  This one has a very even grained two piece spruce top matched with a two piece maple back.  All the maple in the back, ribs and neck are highly figured and the overall effect really pulls you in.

Some dimensions:

string length 41 1/2″

lower bout width 25 5/8″

upper bout width 20 1/2″

rib depth at the lower block 8 1/2″

rib depth at neck block 6 3/4″

distance from bottom of bass to top of back button 46″

The setup from our shop on this includes the installation of a new Gabon ebony fingerboard, Despiau bridge and a New Harmony hollow carbon endpin. The Evah Pirazzi Weich strings installed now seem to work well.

The geometry of this model manages to produce a full sound all across the range  as well as great playability in the upper register due to the sloped shoulders. An impressive bass.
