Stash : Left Handed Bass Guitars

Fancy a left handed bass which really deviates from the norm? The Stash Stainless is the only bass guitar that is made from stainless steel with unified frets and a tubular neck. Each piece of the guitar, from the pickups to the body, has been custom crafted and hand assembled by the designer, Stan Potyrala.

The design is not only clean-cut, sleek and modern, but the unique tubular neck presents the fingers of the musician to a parallel array of strings around a circular radius. According to Stash, this is a more natural and comfortable way for players to reach the strings. This design can also ease the muscle stress that a flat surface can cause to the fingers, hands and wrist.

Every part of the bass is made of the same metal, resulting in it having one coefficient of thermal expansion. This means your bass will stay in tune much longer than conventional basses. It also means even extreme temperature variations won’t harm the bass. The design improves stiffness, mechanical and environmental stability, sound quality, tuning and mechanical accuracy.

Stash Website

The Stash website makes no mention of left handed availability which meant contacting the company directly.  We received a punctual and friendly reply from owner Stan Potyrala confirming that a left-handed version would be no problem.

    Amazing-looking thing! But I bet if I tried importing one to the UK, the postage and import VAT would bankrupt me!

      Depends on whether or not the company would be willing to bend the rules 🙂 I’ve imported plenty guitars to the UK, but only if the seller was willing to mark the value down. Risky, but I’ve always been lucky (and saved a fortune in the process!).
