My new instrument – Citron AE5 Custom

Here are the specifications: 3″ hollow mahogany body 3 piece mahogany / rosewood / mahogany neck 24 fret ebony fingerboard 2 Citron hum-bucking pickups 6 under saddle, blendable piezo pickups
The versatility due to the preamp is actually quite staggering. Harvey lets you blend between the hum buckers and the piezo pick ups. But there is a second blend control for blending between front and back hum buckers as well. The hum buckers have a three band EQ with sweepable mid control, and the piezo have a 2 band EQ with 3 separate volume controls for E, A-G and C strings.

Citron – Custom Build Progress

Exciting times for me. Bass maker Harvey Citron has been making me a bass. Its been about 10 months since I put my deposit down.
Here are some progress shots that Harvey sent me. The body is made from Honduran Mahogany and will feature a 3 piece Mahogany / Rosewood neck with an ebony fingerboard. The hollow body is 3 inches deep and the top is made from Cedar. Im counting the days till it arrives.
Anyone who’s interested should check out Harvey’s website here.
