The ever-popular Matt Garrison Imperial body shape lends itself beautifully to the contrasting color scheme of the woods used on this instrument. The front of this bass is dark and rich with its Amazon Rosewood top and fingerboard while the back is bright and lively, exhibiting an Ash body and tone block paired with a 5-piece maple neck with Bubinga stringers. The tone of this instrument also follows suit. The Ash body and Maple neck create a bright and aggressive foundation to contrast against the warmth provided by the Amazon rosewood fingerboard. Contrast and balance is the key to this bass — a versatile instrument suitable to any musical genre and many different playing styles.
