Bass of the Week: Surine Basses Regency 8-String “Rainbow”

Surine Basses decided to go all out on their Regency model with this “Rainbow” 8-string bass. The hollow-body bass has a stunning 32-strip laminate top and matching headstock with a variety of exotic woods.

Equally impressive is the 7-piece thru neck made of rock maple and purple heart, which is topped by an ebony fingerboard. And if that’s not enough, the fingerboard has intricate mother of pearl inlays with a larger lion inlay at the 12th fret.

The pickup and electronics are made by Bartolini, and the bass’s gold hardware includes a Hipshot detuner on both E strings.
