From the mind of Lee Manson, Production Manager at Riversong Guitars, when given a choice of next project it was easy for Lee: as a bass player he wanted to make the ultimate acoustic bass. Graduated Scale fan frets, Chillakwian Maple back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, walnut fretboard and bridge, dual carbon fibre rods make this an extremely well balanced, big, warm-sounding bass. Finish is a multi-colour metallic over a traditional burst by Masayuki Toyoshima, master finisher. The Graduated Long Scale Bass is unparalleled.
Graduated Scale Bass Wins MIPA Award!
Mike Miltimore and the team at Riversong Guitars are pleased to announce that our Riversong Graduated Long Scale Bass has received the MIPA 2016 Award in the Acoustic Bass Guitar category! MIPA (Musikmesse International Press Award) – the prestigious international prize that honours the year’s best in musical instruments and equipment.
Journalists of over 100 dedicated special interest music magazines from all over the world were called upon to nominate and vote for the best musical instruments and audio equipment of 2015/2016 in the 38 categories of the prestigious mipa/pipa Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound International Press Award.
Riversong Guitars are built with our NeckNology tech – a solid neck that runs the length of the instrument and which can be manually adjusted to YOUR preference.
The Graduated Scale (GS) Series
Balancing tension and tone has always been an issue for conventional guitars. Bass strings require higher tension while treble strings need less. Similar to a grand piano where all strings are different lengths, our GS Series delivers that fine balance between tone and tension. With fanned frets the ergonomics of these amazing looking instruments leave one to question: “Why aren’t all guitars made like this?”
