上次月展之后我发现了一个英国本土手工品牌SHUKER,这个牌子中国很少有人知道,GC上好像也没有任何资料,但是在英国本土的口碑相当的好。我试了几把琴,是在很让人惊喜,尤其是对比它的价格!比如一把标准J贝斯,只有美标的价格,但是(个人认为)却比近年来的美标好上一大截。他的琴都是custom 的,周期大概在六个月左右。最让人兴奋地是,你几乎可以创造出任何一把你想要的bass,因为他提供的选择实在是太多种多样了。比如说你可以选择各种各样的琴体和琴头的样子,搭配。这点在下面的图片中都可以看到。可以选择多种电路,包括shuker自己的多种电路还提供EMG, Bartolini, Aguilar, Basslines, MEC and Schertler等多种选择。拾音器也是一样的,它自己生产了包括J,P,无品专用等多种拾音器,还可以选择例如像DUNCAN ,Kent Armstrong, JMVC等其他厂牌的拾音器。关于木料方面,他有着自己的木头商店,http://www.shukerguitars.co.uk/woodshop.htm,还包括了每块木头的价格。琴颈长短也提供从30到35寸,20品到28品等多种选择。看到这里我都很有欲望组装一把专属自己的bass。其他的也不多说了,大家看图吧,欢迎补充,指正。
