Stash Stainless has expanded their innovative bass offerings with two new instruments: the Model E and the Model P. Similar to the original design, the new models are made almost entirely of stainless steel with a tubular acoustic neck and custom made split coil Alnico 5 pickups.
“The new shapes are slight improvements on the original model’s balance and it has dropped the weight (~ 1 pound) to 9lb (4kg),” says builder Stan Potyrala. “The modern shapes of the basses are to continue to expand my audience with different style preferences/requests and to cater to their desire for a unique design of the bass.”
The new E and P basses feature more stylized bodies with slender horns, with the Model P taking a simpler approach and the Model E adding extra curve. Oval slots on the model E are added as thumb rests.
Other features include a 34-inch scale, 24 frets that are unified with the tubular neck, Gotoh Tuners, and a Switchcraft jack. Potyrala creates each part of the bass in his shop located in Canada.
The Stash Stainless Model E and Model P Basses are available for order now with prices of $2,479 USD.
