Auriga Jazz Bass with classic, vintage jazz bass aesthetics with some modern twists.
Alder Body with a Roasted Canadian Maple Neck & Indian Laurel Fingerboard. 20 Nickel frets on a modern C shaped neck profile with a 38mm Bone nut. It really is all the classic elements that made the jazz bass, but with modern improvements for increased comport and practicality. Such as the truss rod adjustment from the headstock on the simply gorgeous looking roasted neck. Vintage style bridge and tuners, with the classic vol/vol/tone controls.
I have had these basses made to order and imported specifically to give you a solid foundation for modifications and so you can create your own unique jazz bass over time. Or right away. Simple upgrades to the pickups and wiring will give you a more unique tone for home, studio or gigging musicians.
Some suggestions on upgrades would be the 1962 style Concentric Control Plate paired with the Lindy Fralin Jazz Pickups. This will make a huge improvement to the tone and gives you a bass with the kind of components you would usually find in boutique builds.
Bass is all set up, ready to play & enjoy.
