Tim Reede Custom Guitars
The Meridian five string has a low B string in addition to the E,A,D, and G that four string basses have. It is a five piece laminated neck through construction. The fingerboard has a compound radius from 12-20 inches. It has Hipshot ultra light tuning machines and a Hipshot bridge. The pickups are made by Nordstrand and it has an active tone circuit pre amp made by Aguilar. Battery changing requires no tools. The controls are Volume, Blend, Passive Tone (If your battery goes dead in the middle of a set, don't despair, simply switch to the passive circuitry by pulling this knob and rock on). The active tone controls are Bass, Middle (pull to switch midrange frequency) and Treble. The scale length is 35 inches. It comes with Dunlop Strap locks.
This bass has an Alder body and a laminated neck of flame maple, curly cherry and walnut and is re enforced with carbon fiber rods. The body is capped with flame maple. The ebony fingerboard has a 12 to 20 inch compound radius and has flame maple binding. The body is shaped on the front and back to make it more comfortable. The bridge is the Hipshot A style, this gives an additional adjustment to alter the string spacing. All the hardware is gold plated. The frets are a special gold colored alloy that is harder than standard fret wire so they will last longer. The strings are gold colored made by Aurora. There are custom inlays of gold mother of pearl on the fingerboard. One of the most exciting features is the side marking dots are lighted with a blue LED using fiber optics that run through the neck. They can be easily turned on or off when needed.
