Haze Bassmaster 6
Bass times six. The Haze Bassmaster 6 takes six-strings down an octave with thirty, delicious, inches of bass goodness.
It’s not that easy to find a short-scale, six string bass. One with a vibrato narrows the search even more and good examples of such a rare beast are few and far between. Feast your eyes on this though. This is the Bassmaster 6.
An alder body and a graphite-reinforced maple neck. We’re talking solid here. The gloss black of the body is echoed in the headstock and the plain ebony fingerboard but all that chrome ensures this won’t disappear on stage. That ebony board imparts a little warmth to the tone but the bolt-on construction and maple/alder combination keep a focus that you don’t often find in a 30″ scale bass.
With an extra couple of strings and three, individually switched, single-coil pickups to play with, the Bassmaster 6 is chock-full of great tones. Everything from Jack Bruce to Glen Campbell—passing Robert Smith along the way—is catered for.
The Bassmaster 6 plays and feels very like a guitar. It can open up new worlds of experimentation for the seasoned bassist or can help introduce guitarists to the pleasures of the low-end—surely not bad things.
