BasstheWorld.com just released a new demo of the GV Guitars NeoFang Steambass, and it’s too cool not to share. Made in Slovakia, the bass’s design revolves around the steampunk aesthetic of blending old-time and modern looks. They achieve this with an alder body wrapped in carbon fiber against a full rosewood neck as well as cool gear inlays on fretboard and pickups.
The fingerboard is ebony to continue the instrument’s dark color palette. The tricked-out pickups are a custom set made by Sublime and are matched to a 2-band Zolkow preamp.
Check out Gregor Fris’s overview of the bass with demo playing by Lars Lehmann:
