The body is ash or soft maple. The bolt-on neck is Canadian hard rock maple, with an ebony fingerboard and a 34 inch scale length. Machine heads, pickups (ARSX4) and tailpiece are all made by Altlansia and finished in gold. Controls are one volume and one tone, I believe there are also individual switches for the four single string pickups. Finish is polyurethane.
The Oxford basses have two neck support bars. These most probably help sustain by limiting the headstock vibration (conserving the strings vibrational energy)
