Brand: NS Design
NS Design is the industry leader in bowed acoustic/electric instruments and their bass guitars continue that history of bringing authentic acoustic elements to the sound of electric instruments. With nice light weight, balance and playability, the NS WAV4 Radius bass has acoustic and electric pickups for a wide range of great tones. Includes a gig bag case.
NS Diradial Body: NS Diradial Body The concave back profile provides a sense of comfort and stability against the torso. The front of the instrument is more tightly radiused, which, in combination with the general wedge shape of the body, creates a more comfortable orientation to the right hand. The configuration of the body cutaway provides easy access to the highest frets.
NS Radius Neck: The headless, one-piece bolt-on maple neck has 24 frets, a 34" scale and a familiar 15" radius. A volute provides thumb reference at the nut. String slots in the aluminum headplate eliminate the need for a headstock with heavy tuning machines. Conveniently accessed from the top of the neck, the heavy-duty aluminum double-action reinforcing truss rod, with its patented differential thread drive, gives both rigidity and precise relief control.
Bridge & Saddle: The aluminum one-piece bridge and saddle assembly provide broad height and angle adjustment, allowing the player to precisely tailor the action and adjust the intonation.
NS Patented Tuning System (US Patent 6,528,710): Fast and simple, this self-clamping precision tuning system is integrated into the body of the RADIUS. Any standard single-ball end, full-scale bass guitar string can be used. No tools are needed: simply rotate the knurled knob to change a string or tune the instrument.
NS Polar/EMG High Impedance Dual Pickup System: Active electronics, including the 9 volt onboard preamp and EQ, integrate a magnetic custom EMG RADIUS pickup and the NS bridge-mounted Polar pickup. The EMG pickup has a radiused top and magnetic structure to optimize the tone and harmonics from every string. The Polar™ pickup is a unique piezo design, combining a tight and powerful low end with exceptional clarity. The WAV offers master volume and balance controls, along with separate tone controls for each pickup.
