Bass of the Week: Iozzo Guitars Lambda IV
Agustin Iozzo is a guitar and bass builder based in Argentina that makes some amazing looking instruments. This Lambda IV in particular caught my eye on the Iozzo Guitars Instagram page, so I had to find out more.
The bass has a multi-scale neck with a 34-inch E string and a 32-inch G string. Its neck is a combination of maple and guayubira, which is a native Argentinian wood. He also uses it for the fingerboard. The body is another native wood called Paraiso that’s topped with a Birdseye maple veneer.
Iozzo also kept things close to home for the electronics with a set of DS Pickups Jazz Bass Alnico V pickups and a BassAlto 3-band preamp, all made in Argentina.
The bass has some fancy appointments, but its tone is very flexible, Iozzo reports. “This bass has been designed to be a fashion but still classy bass, all around,” he shares. “In fact, the owner plays jazz and metalcore with this.”
