0157Ü Über ART Recurve 4.

Spec Level: Über ART
AC Guitars is very pleased to announce the introduction of the ART tops and finger boards.
The ART woods (Acrylic Resin Treated) will be available in the Über Series of basses and represent the on going partnership between AC Guitars and Gallery Hardwoods.
This proprietary process uses a mixture of acrylic monomers and dyes to impregnated the woods as a through and through process rather than just a surface treatment. As anyone who follows my work will know I have been using acrylic impregnated finger boards for many years. What this new process adds is the ability to colour the woods. This colouring process is completely random with no control over where the dye takes or how much of the dye takes which means every top or finger board is entirely unique.

This Über Series Recurve 4 is the first of the two basses featuring both tops and finger boards.
