The Art of Aging - The 3 Types of aging

20

For our aged series we have developed unique techniques and special varnishes. These skills give our instruments a true long time used look and feel. The very authentic looking aged series is available in three different versions. Fr unsere Aged Serie haben wir ganz spezielle Techniken und Lacke entwickelt, die diesen Instrumenten ein absolut authentisches Used + Vintage Aussehen und Spielgefhl geben. Das Aging bieten wir in drei unterschiedlichen Hrtestufen an.

I Soft Aged II Hardcore Aged III Hardcore Aged Masterpiece

21

3 Types of Aging

blue soft aged fini

sh

tring lake placid

california tm 4-s

I. Soft Aged
Slightly worn, some scratches and minor damages, 10 years of careful presence on stage. Leicht gebraucht, einige Kratzer und kleinere Lackschden und Abwetzungen - etwa wie nach 10 Jahren gepflegter, aber prsenter Bhnenbenutzung.

II. Hardcore Aged


Heavily played, worn and torn surface, nicely tarnished metal parts, a true player with 20 years of on stage experience. Hart rangenommenes Instrument, reichlich Kratzer, Abschrfungen, kaum restaurierbar. Die Metallteile sind sympathisch angelaufen - eine echte Rampensau mit 20 Jahren Bhnenerfahrung.

III Hardcore Aged Masterpiece


These basses are so authentically aged that even experts have to take a third look Body and neck show the patina of the past 30 years, the fretboard and pickup covers have marks from the strings, on the backside of the neck the coating has been played off down to the wood and the body looks like it has been stage-diving the major part of its live When creating a Masterpiece there is so much passion and love for even the smallest detail involved that in the end every instrument has a story of its own in its soul This makes them all unique All Masterpiece build instruments are getting a long time vibration treatment to improve the sound quality It does not only look like but also sounds like a 30 year old, well played instrument Pure, authentic old school! When it comes to aging, there is nothing better

Hier wird der Bass so authentisch gealtert, dass selbst Sachverstndige dreimal hinschauen mssen Korpus und Hals weisen die Patina der letzten 30 Jahre auf, die Pickup-Abdeckungen tragen deutliche Spuren der Saitenschlge Am Hals ist die Rckseite bis aufs Holz abgegriffen Auf dem Griffbrett sind unbersehbare Einbuchtungen und Abschrfungen zwischen den Saiten zu sehen Der Korpus sieht aus, als htte der Bass einen Grossteil seines Lebens mit Stage-Diving verbracht Die Masterpiece-Instrumente haben ihren eigenen, verruchten Charme - die Arbeit an Ihnen findet mit voller Hingabe und Liebe bis zum kleinsten Kratzer statt, so dass der Bass bei Auslieferung tatschlich eine eigene Geschichte im Herzen trgt - was ihn zum Unikat macht Alle Masterpiece-Instrumente werden zustzlich ber einen langen Zeitraum eingeschwungen, was einen deutlichen Klanggewinn mit sich bringt Der klingt dann auch wie 30 Jahre alt - old school in Reinkultur In Sachen Aging nicht zu toppen
