Raya 8 String Electric Bass
Bass players on the lookout for new sounds need look no further. Here’s an instrument that expands the tonal quality and range of the bass with octave strings.
It has a solid alder body and a quarter sawn laminated maple neck with a two-way adjustable truss rod bolted to the body. Its 34” scale length insures a deep, even tone, and the East Indian rosewood fingerboard ( either a 7.25” or 9.5” radius) is both easy on the eye and highly playable. You’ll love the fast attack it facilitates, along with the instrument’s rich tone, and you’ll not miss the G-string `dead spots’ found on some basses. Delivering tons of tone is a Versoul Model 2 Bass humbucker with Alnico 5 magnets and volume and tone controls. Light weight and high quality Hipshot tuners are on board, along with a stainless steel Versoul bridge plate with Gotoh bridge pieces, allowing for precise intonation tuning of the octave strings. Available options include a two-piece Finnish curly birch top and, for added acoustic presence and warmth, a chambered body.
