Marusczyk Introduces “Bass Upfront” Signature Model

Marusczyk Frog Omega 4a "Bass Upfront” Signature Bass Models

Marusczyk and Bass Upfront have teamed up to introduce a Bass Upfront signature model. Based on the company’s Frog Omega, the bass was designed with Bass Upfront founder David Sutkin.

It’s built with a mahogany body and a wenge top with a maple layer between them. Its bolt-on, 3-piece hard rock maple neck is reinforced by graphite rods. The Birdseye maple fingerboard, which serves as a nice contrast to the bass’s dark features, holds 24 frets.

Marusczyk fits the BU model with a pair of Delano SBC4HE/S pickups completed with mini switches for series, parallel, and single coil operation. Further, they employ a Delano 2-band preamp for tonal sculpting. Finally, hardware includes custom chrome/black Hipshot tuners with an Xtender on the E-string and an ETS bridge.

Sutkin is taking orders for the bass in four, five, and six-string versions with an option for multi-scale necks. If you’re unfamiliar with Bass Upfront, be sure to check out our feature with Sutkin, where he shows off his amazing bass collection.
