Sensuous body design, a progressive pickup, and quality hardwoods in this killer 4-string.
Lace equips the Helix 4-String Bolt-On Neck Bass is equipped with the revolutionary Alumitone pickup designed by Jeff Lace. The bass is endowed with a 34" scale length, maple neck, mahogany body, and a single Alumitone bass pickup.
Lace Alumitone pickups are a current driven unlike traditional voltage-based pickups. Alumitones deliver higher fidelity for broadband response that creates a tighter top-end, more mid-range and a huge bottom end. The passive Lace pickup outperforms many active systems, and the sonic output level generally exceeds that of similar preamp equipped basses.
With today's increased environmental concerns, Lace also wanted to create a lightweight, advanced pickup that doesn't contribute to pollution caused by discarded batteries. Alumitone pickups eliminate the need for conventional pickups with a preamp and battery, and jettison almost 2 lbs, without compromising output or performance. Lace Alumitone soapbar pickups and data knobs are made in the U.S.A. with installation and setup completed at the Lace Music factory in Huntington Beach, CA.
Lace includes a custom-fitting, custom-shaped, and custom-designed Lace Red Label gig bag with Velcro neck strap that fits your Helix 4-string bass nice and snug. It features heavy-duty zippers, leather zipper handles, leatherette front pad and end cover, Lace Red Label logo on-body section, and the Lace Helix logo along the neck area and shoulder strap. The bag's zippered, easy-access front storage pocket has penholder, a front pocket large enough to fit cables, cellphones, wallets, straps, and your other small accessories. The bag also has a larger pouch perfect for sheet music or set lists.

Comments about Lace Helix 4-String Bolt-On Neck Electric Bass:
I own one of these. I own a lot of Basses. This one is Cool! It cuts through the mix better than just about any bass--even active ones! Since it's Passive, I don't the "Active" input on my Amp. MY Ameg SVT cuts 15 db's when I do that! I love the neck on this Bass It's big but somehow, I play fast with it. The newer necks may be smaller--that's what I've heard anyways! It's light, balanced, loud, and Fast! The Slap/Pop is PERFECT! I really enjoy it.
