Excel Series

Excel Bass

Heavy groove, light weight. Designed in our New York City workshop, the Excel Bass is our first-ever electric archtop bass. Available fretted or fretless, the single-cutaway hollow-body design makes the Excel Bass exceptionally light, while its standard neck shape and Indian rosewood fingerboard provide ultimate comfort. Truly versatile in tone, the Excel Bass boasts a traditional wiring design with volume, tone and a three-way pickup selector switch. The neck position offers the warmth of a vintage ‘60s hollow-body bass while the bridge position is powerful, bright and loud for when you need more punch.
