Well I was searchin around the internets again and stumbled onto some Bass`s I had never seen before or even heard of.They Are “Martin Keith” and they make what i found to be 4 models of bass`s,And from what I read They make each model in 4 and 5 strings configurations.Then within those configurations it appears they build
3 or 4 different Woods For Each Model.
The first model and the one that really caught my eye is the ” Leo 4 STRING ” Its a real looker a eye pleasing specimen. (see below ) Here is what they say about the Leo 4 String :
The “Leo” is a true hybrid – a modern shape and style, combined with a very vintage-influenced look and sound.
Next I Saw one called The Sylph And It Too Is A Good Looker At Least The Ash Bodied Smoke Finnish One I Saw
Here is what they say about it.
This shape was designed for a very intimate, close feel against the body – the narrow waist and lower bout lay low in the lap for seated playing, and minimize the weight when standing up.
This body shape fits best with shorter 21-22 fret necks. The hanging points are actually quite similar to many well-known instruments, but without the extra width (and weight).
The Sylph shape also offers excellent balance, and is an excellent choice for an extremely lightweight body wood, since the design will compensate and offset any potential “neck dive”.
Available in 4-string or 5-string.
The “Leo” shares the same shape as the Elfin bass, but with fewer frets (22 vs. 24), and a pickguard.
The pickups are classic J-style single coils, with a passive Volume/Blend/Tone circuit that feels instantly familiar. Extra internal shielding on the pickups and control cavity make this exceptionally quiet, even with single-coils.
Solid colors and bursts look fantastic on this design, and a range of many different pickguard materials is also available.
