If there's something that can't be denied about Jens Ritter is his creativity, and his new 5-string bass dedicated to X-Men fans is proof of that.

The new Jens Ritter X-Men will see the light of day during the Winter NAMM 2014. The design of this 5-string bass guitar features scanned cover pages of Marvel's comics. In order to achieve that, Ritter used a new technique that involves printing on a super thin foil that is then covered with a hand-polished, high-gloss lacquer.

The fingerboard has a special, high-tech look as well thanks to a lacquer mixture used commonly for truck rims in the automotive industry. The manufacturer class the lacquer "Stealth Finish" due to its hardness and titanium alloy look.

The instrument with R8-Singlecut body shape has the following features:

  • Alder body with transparent, high-gloss, hand-polished Marvel finish
  • 3-piece bolt-on Maple neck with Marvel finish
  • 24-fret maple fingerboard with Stealth finish
  • 34.5" (876,3mm) scale
  • Ritter Master Triplebucker (Bridge) and Slimbucker (Neck) pickups
  • Ritter BT tuners custom-made by Gotoh
  • Ritter C-3-S Active/Passive 3-Band electronics
  • Ritter 3D bridge
  • Chrome/black hardware
