The Zuma bass body is made of solid premium grade alder wood which we love for its perfect weight to tone ratio. In other words, alder is a dense wood that creates great tone but its not so heavy that it will break your shoulder.
The top coat on this bass is satin.
The neck is North American hard maple with a rosewood fretboard with dot inlays. The profile is very similar to a Jazz bass. The nut is a GraphTech graphite nut and the frets are medium jumbo stainless steel.
All Moniker bass guitars have a 34″ scale length.
The headstock is painted to match the body in shell pink. It has a satin top coat for easy playability.
The hardware on this Zuma bass is all top of the line.
The bass has a Babicz Full Contact Hardware bridge with more mass in the plate than vintage style bridges to improve tone. The Full Contact Hardware’ system offers “full contact” between the vibrating string and the body of the instrument. Babicz designed FCH with the intent of gaining the maximum amount of direct string coupling to the body of the instrument, with over 50 times more contact surface per saddle compared to conventional saddle designs.
Tuners are the 4 in Line Hipshot Ultralite clover bass keys in black.
