Sandberg Previews MarloweDK Signature Bass

Sandberg MarloweDK Signature Bass Prototype

Thomas Risell, better known as MarloweDK, is one of the most watched bassists on Youtube. His instructional and playalong videos have been viewed more than 22 million times on Youtube, and his lessons here on No Treble are incredibly popular as well.

No surprise then, that the bassist caught the attention of Sandberg Guitars, who are developing the MarloweDK Signature Bass.

The company has announced the completion of the first prototype of the instrument, which is set to be officially released at Musikmesse 2012, which takes place in early April of next year.

The bass features an alder body and maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and a tortoise pickguard, passive elctronics. The bass sports a “special MarloweDK red” finish with aging techniques applied, to “make it look like it has been around for 30 or 40 years,” as MarloweDK said.
