FAME Baphomet Gothic 5 Mat Black Lefthand

Five-string left-handed electric bass with MEC pickups and active electronics

With the Fame Baphomet Gothic 5 Matte Black Lefthand the bass smithy from Gdansk presents a 5-string electric bass for left-handers who are looking for a fat rock and metal machine with high playing comfort. Thanks to the MEC pickups and active 2-band tone control, the electric bass delivers a variable spectrum of juicy bass sounds, while the curved ash body and maple neck with quick profile ensure comfortable playability.

The neck and body of the Fame Baphomet Gothic are screwed together six times.

Curved ash body and fast neck

For the construction of the Fame Baphomet Gothic 5 Matte Black Lefthand, the bass builders from Gdansk use first-class woods that ensure a lively sound with precise sound definition. The body is made of ash, while the sixfold screwed neck is made of maple with two locking strips of mahogany and carries a rosewood fingerboard. A special feature is the curved body, which can otherwise only be found on expensive boutique instruments and nestles comfortably against the player for a stable playing position. With its flat D-profile and unimpeded access to the high positions, the neck also offers the perfect basis for every groove. Due to the matt finish and the special surface treatment, the intensive grain is also visible and tactile.

With fat pickups and active electronics from MEC, the Fame Baphomet Gothic delivers a wide range of brute metal sounds.

Fame Baphomet Gothic 5: With pickups and electronics from MEC to a fat sound

The electric tone conversion of the Fame Baphomet Gothic takes over a combination of pickups and active electronics from the German manufacturer MEC, with which the 5-string electric bass on the amplifier delivers a wide range of rich bass sounds between rock and metal. The MEC MM5 humbucker, mounted close to the bridge, convinces with its assertive power sound that pushes every note through the band sound with dry bass, present mids and glassy highs, while the MEC MJ5 single coil in the middle position delivers a massive sound whose rich low end and low middle rumble can be felt in the pit of the stomach thanks to the fat pole pieces. The active 2-band tone control also allows precise interventions in the character-forming frequency ranges.

The solidly built WSC Partsland WB65 bridge ensures precise sound development.

Hardware from WSC Partsland for unlimited functionality

In addition, the Fame Baphomet Gothic is equipped with high-quality hardware from WSC-Partsland, which ensures indestructible functionality even during heavy stage use and long tours. The WSC Partsland WB65 bridge, for example, sits on the body of the instrument. Its lockable string riders not only promote precise tone response, but also ensure perfect intonation and string position. From the bridge, the strings span a classic long scale scale (34.25" or 870 mm) before they are fed to the WSC JB15 tuners at the headstock with absolutely straight tension, guaranteeing a precise and stable tuning. In addition, the Fame Baphomet Gothic is equipped with Schaller Seurity Locks, which keep the bass securely on the belt even during the most intense stage action.
