This is the birth of our first bass guitar series iZEN featuring multi-scale and fixed scale length as well as headless and non-headless bass guitars. Featuring also great access to high frets, seamless neck-body integration and arched top body shape. Wide support of customization choices e.g. body cutaway styles, pickups, bridge types, control layouts, neck thickness and electronics.
We warmly welcome the first bass guitar variant named as iZEN-5MS HL being 5-string headless bass guitar. This is just a beginning of story around iZEN series bass guitars.
First iZEN series bass: iZEN-5MS HL
Taisto Guitars iZEN-5MS HL is 5-string headless custom bass with multi-scale (fanned fret) 33.5"-36" scale length. Despite of bass guitar's long scale length, the design enables it to be fitted in the same size electric guitar case as we use with our V25-series guitars. This helps travelling with the case.
Bass bridge hardware includes a set of ABM single fine tuner bridge units with headpieces. Body top is made of arctic birch (figured or non-figured depending on finish). However, many other choices available.
