The new basses feature a mahogany body, two MEC vintage soapbar single-coil pickups, and active RockBass 2-band electronics.
Markneukirchen, Germany (March 5, 2019) -- In 2018 the Framus Idolmaker guitar received a Warwick Masterbuilt and a Teambuilt bass model as counterparts. In 2019 the Idolmaker Bass will also be available as a RockBass (right-handed instrument) in both 4- and 5-string.
The body of this sleek Idolmaker bass is made of mahogany; the bolt-on 3-stripe laminated maple neck with Ekanga veneer stripes carries a Wenge fingerboard with 20 nickel silver jumbo frets and “Just a Nut III” Tedur saddle. Two MEC vintage soapbar single-coil pickups work together with active RockBass 2-band electronics and controls for volume, balance, treble and bass. A push/pull function on the volume control deactivates/activates the active electronics.
Further features of the RockBass Idolmaker include Warwick machines, two-piece Warwick bridge, Warwick RED strings, Warwick security locks and chrome hardware. The RockBass Idolmaker Bass is available in Black High Polish Finish, Burgundy Blackburst Finish or Vintage Sunburst Transparent High Polish Finish. Included is a RockBag Student Line Gigbag.
Available from the end of July.
