Thomas Risell, better known as MarloweDK, is one of the most watched bassists on Youtube. His instructional and play along videos have been viewed more than 22 million times on Youtube.

No surprise then, that the bassist caught the attention of Sandberg Guitars, who are developing the MarloweDK Signature Bass.

The company has announced the completion of the first prototype of the instrument, which is set to be officially released at Musikmesse 2012, which takes place in early April of next year.

The bass features an alder body and maple neck with a pau ferro fingerboard and a tortoise pickguard, passive electronics. The bass sports a “special MarloweDK red” finish with ageing techniques applied, to “make it look like it has been around for 30 or 40 years,” as MarloweDK said.

Mark - what an unbelievable sound! Had to drop the action just a touch, but the tone from that bass is awesome. Love the pick-ups and the blend knob - better than a Fender by far. Really, really pleased. It will only get better when it gets played in.

The way they have aged it is excellent too - this is the best relic I have seen. Very nicely done. Makes me want more Sandbergs!

Many thanks, well worth the wait!

Enjoy your break, Martin
