The 4-string conventional magnetic pickup model. There are two body styles, the original M401 with a straight upper horn, and the M402 with a curved horn. The 401 line comes with either EMG pickups & preamp, or with a Bartolini pickup/preamp package. They have a custom stand, since the hybrid configuration does not fit a conventional stand.

This bass was commissioned by Jeff ..... who then used it as the theme for his custom motorcycle. It was embossed into the tank and fender and painted in a fancy airbrush paintjob.

An early version of the 4-string hybrid bass. My friend bassist Leo Bei gave me parts from an old bass, a Graphite neck, Bartolini pickups, and asked me to make something with them. Walnut body wings, carbon fibre pick guards, Sperzel locking tuners.
The first bass with the "goth"-type finish. Ted McCann gave me an ESP bass neck and I fashioned this matrix bass around it. The wood is highly sculpted Wenge, a dark wood with a coarse texture.
