The Torzal Bolt-on Bass features a radiused body with a 20° natural twist neck. On this model, the bridge is flat on the body (0°) and the neck rotates to -20° at the nut for more comfortable fretting.
The advantage of the Torzal Bolt-on Bass is a more customary feel of a flat string plane at the end of the neck while still providing ergonomic benefit for the fretting hand. The bolt-on design is also more conducive to production techniques, which means we are able to offer it at a lower price than the standard Torzal.
The neck is made of a single piece of hard maple, with a Pau Ferro or Maple fingerboard. Multi-laminate necks and other woods are available upon request. The body typically consists of a bookmatched flame maple top and either Alder, Swamp Ash or Primavera back.
The Torzal Bolt-on Bass is available in 4-string and 5-string.
