Blast Cult announced a new electric bass model late last year, but the details were still being worked out, into 2013.
Now we know a whole lot more.
The aptly named “Thirty 2” is a 32˝ inch scale bass, and the first electric made by the company. Blast Cult is offering lots of options for this bass, including standard and deluxe colors, fretted or fretless and some choice of woods and hardware.
Standard colors include Black, Antique white and Blond w/Black Neck. Deluxe colors include Omen Green Pearl, Copper Pearl, Three color burst and Piano Black. The Thirty 2 sports a Louisiana Cypress body and a maple neck with a swamp skunk fingerboard and jumbo frets.
Hardware includes a Hipshot bridge, Hipshot ultra light tuners, Graph Tech tusq bass nut and a coined Blast Cult logo on the neck pocket.
The pickup is Blast Cult’s active upright bass model, made by EMG.
Pricing for the bass starts at $2,500 for the Standard configuration. The Deluxe/Pearl option is $2,600, the Three Color Burst is $2,750 and the Piano Black bass is $3,000.
