Boutique bass builder Jens Ritter unveiled a new bass at the NAMM Show this year called the Okon Concept. The new model matches the luthier’s distinctive Okon body shape with his BA Tuning System, which mounts the tuners on the back of the bass’s body.
Following a golden theme, the bass features a 24-karat antique gold finish on its body and neck as well as custom alloy gold frets. Ritter adds some personal flair to it with what he calls a “damaged desktop” finish on the fretboard that mimics school desk graffiti. The bass is fitted with four Ritter Master Slimbucker pickups, each with separate on/off switches, and a Ritter 4-band preamp with two rear mounted trimpots.
The Ritter Instruments Okon Concept is hand-crafted by Jens Ritter in Deidesheim, Germany. Prices vary by options.
