Guitar and bass maker Dean Zelinsky has unveiled the Mule bass. Available in four- and five-string versions, the model is Zelinsky’s first to feature his patented Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck.
The back of the maple neck features a precisely engraved pattern that reduces surface area by putting a little air between your thumb and the neck. Another unique feature is the Thumb-Rail body design, which creates an area to anchor your thumb along the length of the body.
Each bass is fitted with a pair of the company’s DZPLG humbucker pickups with a two-band EQ. Other features include a 3-ply cream pickguard, a 4- or 5-saddle vintage bridge, and a high gloss finish.
The Dean Zelinsky Mule Bass comes in 3-Tone Sunburst, Trans-Amber, Classic Black, Gun Metal Gray, and Vintage White. It’s available only directly from the manufacturer with prices of $649 for the four string and $699 for the five string.
