We developed the Ace 4 and 5 string set neck bass after the success of the Spade six string. We had bass players continuously inquiring about a bass version. Being a devotee of The Rolling Stones I saw Bill Wyman in Los Angeles then later Stanley Clark with Keith Richards “The New Barbarians” concert playing a headless bass. We also developed the monorail prototype hardware and the Ace was once born. The Ace is a full scale professional bass that also doubles as a Commute bass as a result of its compact size. Since the 80’s creative luthiers like Steinberger have challenged the usual by producing top of the range guitars without heads. This unconventional, but savvy design places the entire hardware in one location. Having the whole lot in one place removes the need for a head, which is a boon for your open notes and intonation in general. Without that extra wood and hardware at the end of the neck, balance of the guitar shifts to the body, alleviating the strain on your strap shoulder. Lighter, full scale, compact and works great as a Commute bass. Current headless bass builders such as Strandberg, Teuffel, Mayones, NS, Roehrs, Kiesel, Skervesen and Carvin make high end top of the range headless guitars. Now Bootlegger Guitar is introducing the new ACE 4 and 5 string bass inspired by our Spade six string guitar. Both these top of the range guitars are built by our factory Muse, South Korea, bring value and extreme playability enjoyment.
