Luna Guitars presents the Paz Lenchantin Signature Bass.
Lenchantin is best known for her playing as a member of A Perfect Circle (with Maynard James Keenan of Tool) and in the super-group Zwan (with the Smashing Pumpkins’ founder, Billy Corgan). The bass was a collaboration between the artist and Luna’s designers, and the result is an instrument that Luna describes as being “as vibrant to look at as it is to play”.
Comprised of a 34"-scale Eastern Mahogany body, the bass features a maple headstock and neck (satin finished), rosewood fingerboard, with chrome appointments, Vintage P Bass-style tuners and pickups and Luna’s signature mother-of-pearl moon phase fret markers. The Henna pick guard is cedar with a gloss finish.
According to the brand and artist, the engineering of the bass was based on Lenchantin’s 1969 Fender P-Bass with a bit of a jazz neck feel and a hint of a classic Gibson bass. The Paz Luna Bass is a Passive Bass. The body was design to give it a more feminine curve line, and a particular attention was given to the feel of the neck.
Luna Guitars’ Paz Lenchantin Signature Bass will be ready for shipping mid August. Future offerings will be in Black Gloss with Henna pick guard and Mahogany with Henna pick guard.
No price was announced as of yet.
