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 comes in short and medium scale lengths that fit in an electric guitar sized gig bag. Other 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 push/pull master volume for parallel/series switching, a custom handcrafted onboard 3 band preamp and a passive/active switch. Alternatively, the Southland can be fitted with EMG active pickups - their fat bottom end and sparkling highs along with the extra headroom work exceptionally well with the shorter and medium scales. Paired with the EMG BTS system, there is plenty of growl! Available in two models: Southland 4 and Southland 5 with options. Your choice of different tone woods, different pickup options and your choice of fretted or fretless. Not your typical bass! This is my favourite bass and possibly yours too.
