Bass of the Week: Aries Basses Senes Custom Bass
Aries Basses is a custom shop producing some pretty incredible instruments out of Varazdin, Croatia, including their Senes bass model.
The Senes bass sports a singlecut design with a unique hole in the upper horn, offering a distinct look. The bass is completely custom, and can be built with a variety of top woods.
Standard options for the Senes includes a choice of mahogany, maple, alder, or swamp ash for the body and either a 3-piece flamed maple/hard maple or 7-piece wenge/padouk/maple neck. The fingerboard is typically ebony.
Aries utilizes Hipshot hardware in black, gold or chrome. The pickups are a pair of their custom handwound dualcoils matched with a custom preamp featuring a 3-band EQ and pickup switches.
