SPECS

– The Front –

Napoleon Deluxe 6 - Apple Top (Shade)
Inverted Tuners

A Headstock with no tuners, the Inverted String Blockers are the first thing you can spot on this bass. Why? Simply because giving the low B string some slack after the nut gives it de facto a longer scale.

The TRUSS ROD is dual-action, and accessible through a wheel positioned under the 24th fret. No screwdrivers, just a roll pin punch tool and you can start adjusting.

Pickups

The PICKUP is either a Delano PC-Series, alone, or in combination with the Jay-Ray. The combination allows you to cross multiple iconic bass universes of sound.

Dot Inlays

Rectangle or Oval INLAYS have now become an option for Ganesha Basses.

One string, one BRIDGE, ABM 3901, optionally complemented by a diffuser encased inside the body of the bass, it drives the sound from its very heart, enhancing considerably its sustain. String spacing at the bridge is: 19mm (0.74inches) for 4 string, 18mm (0.71inches) for 5 & 6 string.
