My favourite bass and possibly yours too.
Australia - The Great Southland. At the heart of Australia, known as the Red Center, rises one of Australia's most iconic attractions: a huge red rock known as Uluru. This impressive monolith is made of sandstone and stands 348 meters high and has a circumference of 9.4km. Uluru is at its most stunning around sunrise and sunset, when the golden light makes the rock’s colours come alive.
There is nothing quite like Uluru and there is nothing quite like this bass. Introducing the Southland series. Hand crafted from select tone woods, it features a unique 31" scale length. Not too short and not too long but just right. The perfect balance of comfort, speed and tension. Other short scale lengths are an option too! At the center of the body rises a monolithic hand wound, custom Curtinsmith pickup by Stonewall Pickups, which is nothing short of amazing! Just as stunning as Uluru at sunset, this custom pickup comes alive in this bass. It features a master volume with a three way tone switch and two way parallel/series switch which offers six instant tones for the discerning bassist. An active version with a custom handcrafted onboard 3 band preamp is also an option. Available in two models: Southland 4 and Southland 5 with options. Your choice of different tone woods, different pickup colours (gloss black, matte black, red tort, white, cream) and your choice of fretted or fretless. Not your typical bass! This is my favourite bass and possibly yours too.
