A Mississauga-based company is now producing a metal bass guitar that features a 100 percent stainless steel base. Unlike traditional wooden guitars, the 'Stash Stainless Bass Guitar' is made entirely from metal.
The sleek instrument boasts a brushed stainless steel frame, a metal tube-shaped body and a stainless steel bridge. The guitar also features custom split coil pickups that rely on Gotoh-style tuners and Alnico 5 magnets to adjust tone and volume. Each piece of the guitar is custom crafted and handmade by guitar designer Stan Potyrala. Potyrala's use of stainless steel is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also helps to produce a high-quality sound. The use of a single material means that the bass will stay in tune far longer than conventional bass guitars.
While the metal base guitar is on the expensive side, this chic instrument is sure to wow any crowd.
