Dates of manufacture:
The EGYPT LUXOR NEFERTITI bass guitar features a multi-laminated neck and body. A hornbeam centre splice is used for structural stability and rigidity, flanked by contrasting wenge splices. Either Canadian maple or Brazilian mahogany may be used in the construction. Maple gives the instrument a bright, ringing tone whilst a mahogany construction will give a warmer and thicker timbre.
Two specially designed and individual looking EGYPT CLEARTONE pickups are fitted to the EGYPT LUXOR NEFERTITI. Each CLEARTONE pickup is linked to its own volume and tune control as well as a series/ parallel micro switch. The EGYPT LUXOR NEFERTITI has a centre detented balance control.
Finishes Nile blue, Rosetta Red, Aurora Nile Blue. Aurora Rosetta Red. Thebes (water clear natural), Aurora Tobacco.
