MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO FELLOWSHIP
The Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship bass is a collaboration between Reverend and the eclectic bassist known for her versatile chops and soulful phrasing throughout a long and wide-ranging career. Based on our Thundergun platform, this bass is both minimalist and versatile, covering everything from warm jazz, to percussive funk, to aggressive rock. Unique features include: satin finish, reverse headstock, stacked volume/tone knobs, and P-Blade pickup.
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
STACKED VOLUME/TONE KNOBS
Volume knob on the bottom, with the tone knob on the top, and there’s also a center detent so you can feel where you are in the knob rotation. Simplicity at it’s finest!
HIPSHOT ULTRALIGHT TUNERS
These tuners have a housing made of aircraft grade aluminum that makes them extra-light. The difference in weight can be as much as 2-3oz less in the headstock, which means a more balanced bass that’s more comfortable to play. And the tone is great! Your bass is more defined and enhanced with the Hipshot Ultralites.
LOCK DOWN BRIDGE
Our bridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massive base plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhances clarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatile bridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.
Our bass necks are constructed from five pieces of wood laminated lengthwise. This creates a stronger and more stable neck that’s less prone to warping, twisting, and humps over the life of the instrument.
