The Coquette bass features a neck-through body design with a hard maple neck and soft maple body wings. Hipshot tuners and vintage-style bridge are utilized.



The fingerboard is radiused to a comfortable 9.5″ and is precision fitted with medium-jumbo frets, highly polished to provide a fast playing response. Standard fingerboard woods are Padauk or Osage Orange. Other fingerboard options are available for addition cost; please inquire with your request. Prices vary depending upon wood species. (Please note: Any wood restricted by CITES is not available on export instruments)


The Coquette bass comes standard with a Nelson “Dynamo” pickup. These pickups have been specially designed to produce a fully balanced sound with rich, tight bass and clear, pronounced treble. The pickups are wax potted so undesirable microphonics are eliminated. The anodized aluminum pickguard affords greater wear resistance and beauty, while blocking unwanted magnetic interference which causes hum.


The Coquette bass comes standard with a single pickup. 2 and 3 pickup versions are available at additional cost of $150 per pickup (Includes cost of customizing pick guard)


The Coquette bass is finished in genuine satin lacquer. Many color options are available; please email with your request!
