Bass of the Week: MG Bass Guitar Duo Oasis Double Neck
When you’re looking at basses, there are plenty of aspects to think about. The more adventurous bassist might consider whether to get a fretted or fretless bass. One person came up with a solution by asking, “Why not both?”
This Duo Oasis double neck by MG Bass Guitars sports both a fretted fingerboard and a fretless fingerboard to offer the best of both worlds. We reached out to luthier Mauricio Costa for the scoop.
“This instrument was a custom build,” the builder explains. “It has a PurpleHeart top and Mahogany body. We use Bartolini electronics and connect a 3-way switch that allows you to play on both necks at the same time or not (fantastic for using loops). Despite looking like a ‘big’ instrument, this instrument was designed to weigh less than a popular 6-string… around 9 pounds. This is fantastic because you don’t have to play sitting down to use this incredible instrument.”
