Adamovic Unveils Soul Bass
Adamovic has expanded its lineup of bass models with a new concept called Soul. Built in The Netherlands, the new bass is a blend of old and new.
“It’s a modern instrument, based on our successful Saturn design and inspired by famous 60’s vintage basses. The goal was to capture the essence of these classic sounds and develop it into a modern bass with a solid low B-string and a beautiful even tone across the entire fingerboard. Improved balance, playability and ergonomics make it a perfect blend of modern and vintage elements.”
Adamovic builds the Soul with an alder body and a top of your choice with a black veneer in between. The body has an X-ergo back carving that they say offers perfect access to the highest frets. The five-piece neck is made from maple and wenge. It has a volute-reinforced angled headstock that matches the top of your choice. The fingerboard is a choice of maple or ziricote and has either inlaid edge markers or block inlays.
For electronics, the Soul is fitted with two Jazz Bass pickups of your choosing: traditional single-coils, humbucking Jazz pickups, or Jazz pickups with angled pole pieces. From there you can order the bass with passive electronics or an active three-band preamp by Glockenklang or Noll. Finally, the bass is rounded out with Hipshot hardware. All-in-all, the five-string bass only weighs 7.7 pounds.
The Adamovic Soul can be specced out with many options on their website. It carries a starting price of approximately $3,059 for the four-string version.
