Nathan East has appeared on countless albums and has toured with some of the biggest names in music. So it's only natural that Nathan's signature bass has to deliver tone and versatility ready for a wide variety of gigs.
Nathan East's signature bass delivers tone and versatility for a wide variety of applications. Featuring neck-through construction, the two‐octave neck is built from Maple and Mahogany with an Ebony fingerboard inlaid with figured Abalone, complimented by the matching Mother of Pearl tuners. The unique BB body is made of Maple and Alder for a fat sound with plenty of definition. The BPZ‐7 bridge features individual, machined saddles that provide precise intonation, a low profile, and an elegant look. The stacked Alnico Humbuckers run through 5‐control active electronics, which feature a custom 3‐band EQ with a switchable mid‐cut to provide sonic versatility for any situation.
