Franz Bassguitars MerakThis small, but fine bass smithy is based in beautiful Upper Franconia, Germany. Starting as a traditional third generation carpenters workshop, owner Xaver Tremel one day held a bass in his hands and that was it. him. From then on he decided not only to build tables, chairs and benches for the surroundings like his grandfather Josef had done in the past, but also to get into the art of (bass) guitar building.
Years later the results are remarkable: meticulously crafted individual items, handbuilt by master craftsmen. The wood used is predominantly regional, such as alder from the Black Forest or resin and oak from the Spessart, which, in addition to the beautiful and important aspect of the sustainability of raw materials, not only provides a beautiful local touch, but also fits perfectly into this particular bass construction and sound concept.
The Merak series is the Upper Franconian interpretation of a lively 4-string with direct, bony tone and lots of attack. Paired with a beautiful neck, PJ-assembly and excellent workmanship, these instruments are a lot of fun.
