Where possible we use timber from sustainable sources, grown in managed forests in
Europe. Exotic tonewoods and timbers from North America are also available on request.

For a minimal environmental impact we finish our basses with water based lacquers
or oil/wax finishes but alternative finishes are also available.
All instruments are custom built. Therefore, the customer can specify timber, neck
dimensions, pick-up and hardware choices differing from the standard models during
the ordering process.

length. Short scale (762mm), 5/6-string and active systems are optional. Any Piranha
