Luthier Rick Toone and “Monster” take us on a demo of the Orchid Bass guitar covering its sculpted ergonomic bass body, the unusual trapezoidal profile neck and the piano-like clarity of its sound.
In Monster Eats Orchid, Toone notes that…
Although Orchid was designed to ergonomically fit a petite player, watch Monster chew on the bass. He’s 12″ taller than Halie and outweighs her by 110 lbs. Because the bass also comfortably fits him, I would characterize this body shape as successful.
Overall, it’s quite an impressive bass.
