This shape was designed for a very intimate, close feel against the body - the narrow waist and lower bout lay low in the lap for seated playing, and minimize the weight when standing up.

This body shape fits best with shorter 21-22 fret necks. The hanging points are actually quite similar to many well-known instruments, but without the extra width (and weight).

The Sylph shape also offers excellent balance, and is an excellent choice for an extremely lightweight body wood, since the design will compensate and offset any potential "neck dive".

Available in 4-string or 5-string.

Sylph 5-string, Ambrosia Maple top
This Sylph 5-string was featured at the 2007 NAMM show.

The Ambrosia Maple top was subtle yet stunning, with a striking mix of quilt/flame, spalting, and color variations.

The lightweight walnut body core was a natural complement to the maple fingerboard, giving this bass a clarity and depth that speaks beautifully live or recorded.

(In fact, before this sold, I used it for a session or two! The bass-playing engineer loved it.)
