Imperial FM3 Bass 4 String

Flame Maple Top

A favorite of guitar players, Flame Maple provides a stark "flame" contrast between the darker and lighter grains creating a sort of "zebra" effect in the wood. Accented with Transparent finishes, it's tough to make a prettier guitar. Like Quilt Maple, Flame Maple is added as much for its tonal properties as its vibrant appearance.

 

Transparent Finish

Transparent finishes are among the most desired in guitars as they allow for both the unique color and the natural grain of the wood to show through. The darker grain provides a dynamic contrast to the lighter grains giving you a 3-Dimensional and unique look.

 

Babicz Bridge

The Babicz bass bridge utilizes technology for bass bridge saddles that offers a dramatic improvement in sustain and tonal quality by eliminating any gaps or voids between the bottom of the bridge saddles and the body of the guitar or bass. The Babicz bass bridge also offers a saddle housing lock feature for added saddle stability.

 

EMG Pickups

EMG Pickups started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. A distinctive look and sound, there's simply not mistaking EMG pickups.

 

Deluxe Tuners

Optimized for bass design, DBZ's Deluxe Tuners provide both the look and feel you need. Sealed housing, precision machined gears and precise tension make for performance and enjoyment for years to come.

 

Contoured Set Neck

DBZ's Contoured Set Neck method is arguably the most popular neck joint style amongst high-end electric guitars. The set neck is carefully cut to match its mounting point on the guitar body and the two sections are joined to maximize strength and minimize neck wiggle. Most notable is the amazing feel of the neck joint when you need it most - near the highest frets. Our contour feels fast, comfortable and as if the neck joint isn't even there.
