The ASH Taiaha is a special edition 5-string bass guitar, which is limited to
only 10 instruments in the series. A curvaceous single-cutaway, semi-hollow body capped with exotic figured wood like swamp kauri or southern red beech. The standard format is a five-string fretted, but 4, 6 or more strings are quite possible, as is a more traditional double cutaway version based on the Supra/Chakra body shape. The one pictured to the right has a mahogany/swamp kauri body and a maple/bubinga/ebony fretless neck.
figured swamp kauri top - hollowed wings (back/wing wood to suit tonal needs; kauri, rimu, taraire etc)
