NS Design WAV4 Radius 4-String Headless Bass, Metallic Crimson - Used

Type: Used
Condition: Very Good

NS Design Wav Radius Headless 4-String Bass.  Has a very small chip on body to the left of the pickup, and some light pick scratches.

The WAV Radius Bass Guitar is completely about the experience, every time you pick it up. It’s in the feel of the instrument before you plug it in, and it’s embodied in the tone, performance and possibilities when the house lights go down. Among the advantages of a headless bass are weight and balance. The RADIUS body contours to your torso, your hands fall naturally into place, and there is no neck dive. It feels extraordinarily secure and comfortable.

NS DIRADIAL BODY: The concave back profile provides a sense of comfort and stability against the torso. The front of the instrument is more tightly radiused, which, in combination with the general wedge shape of the body, creates a more comfortable orientation to the right hand. The configuration of the body cutaway provides easy access to the highest frets. The tuning system is integrated into the body.

NS RADIUS NECK: The headless, one-piece bolt-on maple neck has 24 frets, a 34″ scale for the WAV4 and 35″ scale for the WAV5, and a familiar 15″ radius. A volute provides thumb reference at the nut. String slots in the aluminum headplate eliminate the need for a headstock with heavy tuning machines. Conveniently accessed from the top of the neck, the heavy-duty steel double-action reinforcing truss rod, with its patented differential thread drive, gives both rigidity and precise relief control.

NS POLAR/EMG HIGH IMPEDANCE DUAL PICKUP SYSTEM: Active electronics, including the 9-volt onboard preamp and EQ, integrate a magnetic custom EMG RADIUS pickup and the NS bridge-mounted Polar pickup. The EMG pickup has a radiused top and magnetic structure to optimize the tone and harmonics from every string. The Polar pickup is a unique piezo design, combining a tight and powerful low end with exceptional clarity. The WAV offers master volume and balance controls, along with separate tone controls for each pickup.

BRIDGE & SADDLE: The aluminum one-piece bridge and saddle assembly provide broad height and angle adjustment, allowing the player to precisely tailor the action and adjust the intonation.
