Actually it was yesterday.
So Stick Enterprises introduced a new hard anodized aluminum stick model recently:
I managed to score one from the first production run. Here's some shitty pictures!
The new pickup design. Generally passive. Can output stereo or mono into either tip or ring (left or right side). Tone knob on each side adjusts low mids and the passive mid filter knob adjusts the mids to 3 preset vowel sounds. If you plug it into a 1/4"->XLR cable, you can use phantom power in a mixer or preamp to make the pickup unit active.
Action at the nut
headstock bolts on to body
Thickest point of the body.
Inlays arent -- they're actually cut into the fingerboard. Bass strings have relief ground into the middle of the frets under the anodizing.
That looks awesome as fuck dude.
