Bass of the Week: Zoov Guitars Classic 5 Fretless

This week we check out the Classic 5 String Bass from Zoov Guitars, a custom shop based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While each bass is made to order by luthier Nicholas Lacroix, this particular fretless version really stands out for its beauty and attention to detail.

The bass has a beautiful assortment of woods. Its neck is tigerwood is topped with a ziricote fingerboard and purpleheart stringers. The body wings are mahogany topped with gorgeous slabs of purpleheart. Other woods used include lacewood, padauk, and walnut.
