Some Headless History
Since the 80’s creative builders like Steinberger have challenged the standard by producing high-quality guitars without heads. This unconventional, but savvy design places all of the hardware in one location. Having everything in one place eliminates the need for ahead, which is a boon for your open notes and intonation in general.
Without that extra wood and hardware at the end of the neck, the balance of the guitar shifts to the body, alleviating the strain on your strap shoulder. Lighter, full scale, compact and works great as a travel bass. Current headless bass builders such as Strandberg, Teuffel, Mayones, NS, Roehrs, Kiesel, Skervesen, and Carvin make high-end high-quality headless guitars.
Now Bootlegger Guitar is introducing the new ACE four-string bass inspired by our Spade six-string guitar. Both these high-quality guitars are built by our factory Muse, South Korea, bringing value and extreme playability enjoyment. The Ace bass is a full 34-inch scale 24 fret set neck guitar. At 8 pounds It is well suited for the traveling pro or the traveling enthusiast.
We use only the highest quality woods, three-piece maple neck through body, ash body wings, and beautiful high polished Brazilian cherry Jatoba fretboard. All South Korean hardware uses standard single ball strings. Comes with a high-quality custom hard case ready for the road or overhead plane compartment.
The Ace and Spade are designed and built by Bootlegger Guitar.
