Custom builder Ryan Hyde has fit tons of mojo into a small package with the Nuvo, a bass that fits in a guitar case and weighs less than five pounds. It features a short 30-3/8″ scale and a thin body to produce a signature tone.
“The tonality is right in line with any P-bass, and the Nuvo has a ton of sustain,” says Hyde. “The neck is thick with a slight “A” profile, so it feels substantial in your hands.”
The Nuvo is built with a 3-piece mahogany and maple neck, a mahogany body, and a bubinga fretboard. It has a surf green nitro paint finish with black and white binding on the body and neck. Other features include a Nordstrand NM4 Mustang style pickup, Hipshot tuners, and an Archtop style floating bridge.
Hyde is building the bass in a small run with prices starting around $3,500.
