STEAM Artist #132ON HOLD

Juha Ruokangas talks about CITES

Steam bass – with neck-through-body..?

If you’ve been happy with the traditional approach of our Steam bass design but have yearned for that extra little step into more modern direction – not necessarily ultra-modern that would lose the unique character of the instrument, but still – a notch better access high up, a couple of extra frets and an even smoother response and playing experience than the Steam Classic or Deluxe, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m happy to present to you the first-ever Steam Artist bass! A long-awaited addition to our bass lineup, the Artist is everything you love about the Steam bass—and then some!

This bass is as simple as the Steam Artist gets, with its’ thermally aged alder body wings, thermally aged maple neck-through-body and rosewood fretboard. A serious new tool for the hardworking bass player!

If you’re seriously interested in this bass, please contact me for an offer. Or, if you have any questions about the instrument, I’m more than happy to answer!
