Bass of the Week: Lorita Basses Century Series II

Lorita Basses Century Series II Bass

This week we’re checking out a cool new bass from Lorita Basses. The Century Series II carries the same singlecut body shape as the Century model, but with a solid body construction and a bolt-on neck.

This particular bass has a headless setup and is constructed with a swamp ash body, burl elm top, hard ash and hard maple neck, and an Indian rosewood fretboard. Lorita fits the Century Series II with a pair of their custom split coil pickups under wooden covers as well as an active/passive Glockenklang 3-band preamp. The headless bridge and tuners are made by Hipshot.
