A couple days ago, a large box showed up at my office.
Inside, was a case that had clearly seen better days...
What's inside, you ask?
THOR SOUND (and '70s-style brass nut)
Some nicely figured wood on the body, and the rosewood board (I think it's rosewood) is incredibly dark.
Narrow-spaced bridge for maximum fingerstyle/pickstyle speed. This thing is in INCREDIBLE shape for an almost thirty-year-old bass.
Single Aria humbucker in the P-bass position. Sounds. . . like a P-bass, with a little more top end and upper mids and a little thumpier in the low mids, probably due to the 32" scale.
It's got a huge neck. Wide nut, deep profile. I almost didn't keep it due to the neck profile as it's so different from the tiny necks on my Kubicki and Dingwall, but I took it to rehearsal and it played and felt great.
Plays really really quickly. The combination of short scale and narrow string spacing makes it really easy to fly on this neck. A slightly smaller neck profile would be nice, but isn't necessary.
This is also far and away the lightest TSB I've ever heard of or played. Usually they're in the 9-11 pound range, but this is a very reasonable ~7 pounds, so it's comfortable to wear for three straight hours of rehearsal!
Well, that's great looking.
