AVIATOR BASS

A proprietary model, the Aviator Bass is a modern approach to what we refer to as the“catalog” guitars of the 60’s. These instruments, made by companies such as Danelectro, Teisco, Greco, Kay (Montgomery Ward), Silvertone (Sears), etc., reflected the jet age time period, with often wild shapes and switching mechanisms, along with unusual scale lengths and cheap hardware. Most of them sold for under $100, and were highly unique. We have taken that basic concept and unique aesthetic appeal and created a striking instrument that emulates this style, while at the same time utilizing the finest electronics, wood selection, pickups and hardware. This is the most comfortable bass you will ever play, and the scale length allows for uniform string tension while at the same time making it incredibly easy to get around.
