Samick Greg Bennett Design DB55 FM Delta 5 String Electric Bass Guitar
The Samick guitar factory has made guitars for well known brands such as Squier, Epiphone, Washburn, Hohner, Silvertone and more. In fact some of the most well crafted and most sought after and desired instruments from these brands were in fact made by Samick. So when it says Samick on the headstock rest assured that the quality and craftsmanship stand up against any other import brand on the market but at a lower price.
The last decade has seen many bass players take on the responsibility of a lead player. The design challenge for the Delta project was to maintain the rich full bottom that forms the band’s foundation and to also cut through without sounding harsh or synthetic. The key to tone and mechanical efficiency is met through construction. The 5 piece Maple and Rosewood neck creates a super rigid platform that refuses to rob the string of its energy. The result is an amazing combination of power, warmth, and articulation. This technique also allows the whole fingerboard to be exposed for easy access. The long top horn and compact headstock make the neck featherlike and energy efficient. For the body, the combination of mahogany sandwiched between figured walnut produces clarity with warmth. This is truly one of the great bass guitars on the market today.
