We have spent all the time needed to customize your bass to perfection. This is a high end 30 inch bass that was developed with Christian Olsson from UNICORNBASS and Johan Maximilian from Basstradersweden.
It is important to understand the concept of the build, it is a bass with the highest custom specifications and you are only to make 4 choices when ordering the bass of your future. If you want something else (any changes like a different scale length, wood choices, PU/ electronics etc) then this is not for you. Then you need to place that order directly with Christian, on the other hand this concept saves you many long nights thinking of the perfect combinations, which is endless. We are proud of the new NEO!
During our many meetings with good coffee and the mindset of nerds that talk about every detail and with our experience with a background in playing and building basses for many years, we came to an conclusion.
In owing, building and playing basses like: Fodera, MTD, Alembic and many of the top end handbuilt instruments out there, this is the core of the new NEO.
