Bass of the Week: Emiliano Bernal Burzaco Series BS0001

Emiliano Bernal Burzaco Series BS0001 Bass

Extended range bassist Lucas Gonzalez was approached by luthier Emiliano Bernal to collaborate on a series of ERBs. He shared the first of the results with us, dubbed the Burazco Series BS0001, and it’s beautiful.

The hand-crafted instrument is built with a Bolivian mahogany body, a zebrawood top, and a two-piece quartersawn hard rock maple neck topped with a birdseye maple fretboard. The 24 frets are inlaid with abalone dot markers. Bernal fitted the body with Bartolini split coil pickups and a Bartolini 4.6 AP NTMB918F 3-Band EQ. Hardware includes Dunlop strap locks, Hipshot Ultralite tuners, and an Ultralite A-style bridge.

“This Series will be completed with another 6 stringer and a 7 and 8 strings. With slight variations one from the other but keeping the scent and design we built,” Gonzalez adds. “We carefully picked specifications and accessories we know they are among the best an more popular in the taste of the Bass community.”
