Bass of the Week: BITE Guitars Stairway-to-Heaven Bass
BITE Guitars recently launched the One-Song series, which creates one-off showcase instruments based on a single iconic song. This week we’re checking out the “Stairway-to-Heaven” Bass.
“Each bass pays tribute to one particular song which made its mark in rock history,” BITE explains. “This bass is dedicated to Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.”
The bass takes its inspiration quite literally and features an image of an MC Escher-styled staircase among clouds. BITE built the bass with an alder body in a Candy Apple Red finish, a hard maple neck, and a maple fingerboard fitted with block inlays. Other features include their passive 1000 mV split-coil pickup, black clover tuners, and a Gotoh black brass bridge.
