German luthier Jens Ritter has just announced a new model to his Artist Series. The Bone was designed with bassist/producer LaMarquis Jefferson, whose credits include bass lines for OutKast, Goodie Mob, Society of Soul, TLC and more.
“The Bone” features a German Alder body, a three-piece maple bolt-on neck, and a maple fingerboard, all decked out in white.
THe Carrara finish is also accented by white and gold hardware, including Ritter BT tuners that are custom made by Gotoh and a Ritter 3D bridge with a “B1” String Attachment. The pickups are a pair of Ritter Master Triplebuckers, that feed into its “Jefferson” 4-band electronics.
Available in 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-string versions, the Bone is fitted with a laser engraved backplate. The base model lists at €5500 (approximately $7,445 USD). For more info, visit the Jens Ritter Instruments website.
