Hrishikesh Hirway Healer Bass

Walnut Healer Bass for @hrishihirway who designed the original Healy logo back in 2005 and more recently started the brilliant podcast @songexploder The bass has a chambered Walnut body, roasted maple neck, and a macassar ebony fretboard. 34” scale, 1.75” nut and 10” fretboard radius. Satin lacquer finish with a black headstock face. Bakelite pickguard and a P90 sized Fender Wide-range style pickup made by @geminipickups. We wanted to explore some P-bass specs within the parameters of the Healer and a custom pickup was definitely the way to go. Rob at Gemini delivered with the humcancelling of a dual coil pickup but with more articulation and mid punch. I modeled the neck shape after my own Sadowsky bass and the overall vibe aesthetically was to be a big brother to the guitar I made Hrishikesh back in 2005. Natural woods, black accents, nickel hardware.
