Bass of the Week: Bajos Colmenares #22
Bajos Colmenares of Venezuela has some pretty beautiful designs, including their model #22. The 5-string bass features neck-through construction with a slender body of cedar and apamate. The fingerboard and headstock cap are ebony.
The #22 is fitted with a Nordstrand NJ5 pickup in the neck position and a MM5.2 pickup in the bridge position. Each pickup has separate volume and tone controls, while a toggle allows for switching between coils on the MM5.2.
Hardware includes Hipshot Ultralite tuners and a Pau Ferro bridge with aluminum saddles.
