Chicago, IL (May 19, 2015) -- Dean Zelinsky Guitars announced today the debut of the Mule line of basses, the world’s first bass to feature Zelinsky’s Patented Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck. As with all of Zelinsky’s latest designs, the line of Mule Basses are sold exclusively through the company’s website.
The Mule Bass features Zelinsky’s new, revolutionary thumb-rail body-design. The Thumb-Rail is a ridge uniquely carved into the contoured body, offering the player a thumb rest anywhere they desire along the length of the body. Zelinsky is the first to introduce a bass with such a strategic body design.
Zelinsky states, “I set out to design a vintage feeling and looking bass, but with some cutting edge technology. With my Thumb-Rail body design, bass players are no longer limited to resting their thumb strictly on the pickups. The Thumb-Rail opens up limitless tonal options with your picking hand.”
Zelinsky continued, “The Z-Glide neck on the Mule is extremely meaningful as well. Bass players can now experience that same great ease of getting up and down the neck that thousands of guitar players who have purchased our Z-Glide equipped guitars enjoy.”
The Mule comes in both 4 and 5 string models, has two of Zelinsky’s active humbucking bass pickups, a blend control, stacked treble and bass boost, rock hard maple Z-Glide Neck, heavily contoured, thin lightweight body design, graphite nut, and close ratio tuners.
Zelinsky designed the Mule to be a very affordable alternative to what is already out there in the custom bass world. The advanced body contouring makes this bass ultra-comfortable to play with styling that rivals basses at twice the price…and more.
