The Panther combines vintage tone and feel with uncompromising accuracy, playability and durability. The bass boasts an ultra-light body, 34” scale length, 7.25-9.5” compound radius fretboard, and a single Lollar P-Style split pickup with the option of adding a J-Style bridge pickup as well. With superb dynamics and a vast tonal range, this bass is all you need to sit just right in the mix with classic warm and fuzzy low end—once you pick her up, it’s hard to put her down.
What Do We Think?
Tough to put into words, but this bass is concurrently warm and miraculously punchy. You can actually feel the low string resonate through the body of the bass unplugged. And plugged in… the pop, growl and power are deliciously balanced. The Lollar P and J sound fantastic each on their own, but the real showstopper is both pickups running together. The attack is immediate and the tone is ferocious.
The bass is quite the looker too. Shabat’s Seafoam Green Sparkle is becoming a top favorite of ours. The block inlays and cream fretboard binding take it to the next level. The binding edge is nicely rounded and the medium C neck feels fantastic in the hand. Oh, it’s flame roasted maple too!
