A Rjsc multiscale bass, Arcturus is based upon the fusion design with some body changes to suit the longer scale length. The Arcturus body is stretched out by 35mm beyond the scale to accommodate the 37” low string without the hardware hanging of the end of the body. The upper horn is pulled forward to meet the shorter high string. Being a multi scale and a single cut means for a focused low end and as well as having clear articulate highs.
The Arcturus body styling has a wider waist. Thin C style neck provides full access to the fretboard and makes traversing the scale lengths a breeze. The head stock is pitched down toward the high strings to follow the fans layout, which further enhances the balance in tension and tone across the strings.
