Balaguer Guitars Unveils the Monoceros Bass

Balaguer Guitars Monoceros Bass Flat Black

Balaguer Guitars has unveiled the Monoceros bass, which they describe as their take on “a modern bass but with vintage vibes.” Central to the bass’s sound is its set of Marracobucker pickups (a new set from Balaguer) and a Darkglass Tone Capsule preamp.

It’s built with an alder body, five-piece walnut and maple neck with graphite reinforcements, and a maple fingerboard inlaid with pearloid blocks. Balaguer also uses its own 18:1 ratio tuners and hardtail bridge to round the instrument out.

As part of their Select Custom series, the bass’s features can be customized via their website. The Balaguer Guitars Monoceros has a base price of $1,769.
