Short Scale Form Factor Audio Bass Wombat 5 Mini-Scale (27″) Satin Grey Burst
The quarter sawn maple neck is stiffer than plain sawn, and will also affect string tension.
This is exactly why the Low B 6th string on this bass sounds better than on most 35″ scale
DUAL TRUSS ROD SYSTEM
All Form Factor instruments utilize Dual Truss Rods with “Easy Wheel” Dual truss rod adjustment system made from Titanium to maintain neck stiffness, stability and reduce weight. There are a lot of basses on the market
with a tendency to have weak neck binding structures due to high string tensions.
For this reason, two Titanium rods are applied to all bass guitars.
The nut is one of the most important parts of the bass that influences the performance, playability, and tone of the instrument. Depending on the quality of the material, the nut can either improve or degrade the sound. Although the TUSQ nut is more costly and harder to work with, it is considered to deliver more balanced, clearer and smoother tones than brass, corian or other materials.
