STR Sierra LS5. AMAZING! All the two's $2222 AUD ppin

Post by innobassion » 24 Sep 2015, 09:34

Ladies & Gentlemen, Bassists and Bass-ettes here at Bass Japan Direct we are truly excited to present the latest in the revered STR line up.

This is on a level with Ken Smiths tonally, and build wise is solid, reliable and very comfortable to play.
It just oozes class in it's smart black or white matte finish.

An amazing deal on this beautiful 5 string cost performance STR bass, made by Japan's top luthier Satoru Yatsuzuka. This is available for $1555 USD or $2222 AUD shipping included.

You simply can't beat STR on craftsmanship and at this price this is a bargain...its like the old Ken smith burners tone wise but ...well ...better if you can believe it.
This bass with its incredible DeviseR humbucckers produces a thick fat tone, with rich tight lows, it gets that honk on the rear pup too, it is in short an extremely versatile and beautiful instrument...up there with the best boutique basses in the world....yet it doesn't cost anywhere near as much thanks to STR using standard materials and construction with simple finishes on this line.

FINGERBOARD Rose wood with abelone inlays

Wow....the demo video sounts great. Really shows how versatile this bass is.

Are both pickups switchable to single coild mode and do these come in a 4 string version?

Thanks for your kind words and questions! Yes the pickups are switchable between parallel and series, (full coils or front coils) and work in this manner when panned too in both active and passive modes.
No 4 string version I'm afraid only 5vers at the mo.

I'm quite taken with that headstock. It's nothing new but at the same time it's unique.

Yes it's not a particularly striking headstock shape, but is certainly classy and elegant. I do believe it is unique to STR and registered as part of the brand. Glad you dig it!
