You might know Ashdown for their amazing quality bass amps, but here's a new one for you: Ashdown bass guitars! The British brand have worked with skilled luthier Dan Lakin to create a kitted-out range of new creations, as well as a couple of firm favourite shapes.
The Low Rider is a groovy offset body packing serious firepower in the form of two in house-designed humbucker pickups. This is a true homage to a classic bass.
Made using supreme alder and maple woods for the body and neck, the Low Rider is a joy to play thanks to a number of carefully thought-out features.
The neck is finished in a birchwood-casey Tru-Oil brand gun stock oil allowing your hand to slide seamlessly up and down the neck. Its 10-inch radius fretboard is on the vintage side of things and fills out the hand nicely.
Hardware on the Low Rider really shines with pro-grade Hipshot tuners and a Wilkinson bridge keeping the strings and intonation super stable.
The Low Rider dishes out the dirt from a pair of heavy humbucker pickups. Load up on fuzz, gain or distortion for a true rock 'n' roll tone. This bass is ideal for all types of rock where a gritty sound is fundamental. Dial in your tone across two volume dials, one tone dial and a three-way pickup selector.
