Loo Yeo's Wilkat Custom EB-0 Élan Bass:
This lovely custom bass body was made for Loo Yeo. Loo was searching for a bass to suit his needs and he also wanted to have something affordable, and convertible, (this bass was supplied with both a fretted neck with a rosewood finger board, and a fretless neck, with a lined ebony finger board). In addition to capturing the style of a "Thumb" bass, Loo wanted an active pickup system that would provide full tonal control and maximize the bass's capabilities and range. That was accomplished by the EMG J series pickups and their BQS 3 band EQ pre-amp system (seen being wired in below).
Simple, elegant, and comfortable:
The oiled finish brings out the beauty of the wood grain!
The woods used included maple and purple heart wood center (for excellent neck to body sound transfer ensuring solid sustain and string response), and butternut wings for superb resonance and light weight playing comfort.
The necks are 3 piece laminated maple construction (maple and purple heart), and standard 34" scale length. The bridge is a Schaller adjustable roller saddle type with an adjustable string spread capability.
