Bass of the Week: Maurizio Ūber Basses Ūber-Groove 4 Single Cut

This week we’re checking out an Ūber-Groove 4 Single Cut by Maurizio Ūber Basses called The Promise. The bass features a stunning Monkeypod top over an Asian mahogany body.

“The Promise was built for a client who, among other gigs, plays regularly at church,” MūB explains. “Being a religious man, he wanted his bass to be inspired to a verse from the Bible – Corinthians 2:9. Most of the aesthetic choices were largely influenced by the biblical theme: the old and rugged Raintree top with voids filled in a way that mimics fossilized wood, the ebony board with a large sap area, the headstock made of a few pieces.”

The bass’s hard-maple neck is bolted onto the body with seven bolts. As with all MūB instruments, it has a headless tuning system. “MÜB are built around the concept of headless tuning system with a headstock,” the company writes. “Getting the best of both worlds, they feature classic look with the superior reliability of headless tuning system.”

Other features include Bartolini P/J pickups and an Aguilar OBP3 preamp.
