When you hear “Graph Tech ghost” most players usually associate it with the electric guitar, which not the only case. We also make a system that will work specifically with an acoustic guitar (steel or nylon) as well as the bass guitar. Here is an article from Bass Musician Magazine about Carvin Guitars and their use of both our Black TUSQ XL nuts, and the ghost system and how it can be used with the bass guitar. Enjoy!
Graph Tech Adds Ghost System to Carvin Basses
Graph Tech Guitar Labs, the world’s largest guitar nut and saddle manufacturer is excited to announce that Carvin’s P Series B2 Bass, the Signature guitar of Brian Bromberg, is equipped with the ghost System.
“I have been using Graph Tech Ghost saddles with piezo pickups on my basses for years, they are fantastic! I am proud to use them on my Carvin P Series B2 Basses. It’s amazing to be able to turn a knob and have a completely different, almost acoustic sound. Between the Graph Tech piezo saddles, steel, piccolo, and even nylon strings, you can get one bass to sound like several different basses! Very cool indeed,” said Brian Bromberg, Jazz Bassist and Record Producer.
To create the ultimate bass guitar, Carvin considered the technically demanding style of the famed Bassist, Bromberg, and combined that with a modern and slick design. The P Series Bass is equipped with ghost Acousti-phonic System by Graph Tech, which diversifies the bass, offering more options and control over the type of sound, in studio or live. This allows you to achieve electric, authentic acoustic or any blend of both with one instrument.
“For piezo/synth applications, Graph Tech clearly has the best performing bridges and electronics for creating true acoustic synth tones,” says Mark Kiesel, VP Carvin Guitars.
Surrounded by String Saver saddle material, the ghost Acousti-phonic captures the natural acoustics of your electric bass, which can then be amplified or recorded directly, without the problems associated with a live or studio amplified acoustic guitar.
The B2 Bass is also equipped with a self-lubricating, harmonically rich Black TUSQ XL nut by Graph Tech.
