Nexus Gen3


The Nexus is the culmination of conversions with many players, artists, and designers. This helped to narrow the Nexus model down into its current form. Every aspect of this bass has been considered right down to the strings. A medium sized body gives the bass a solid feel whilst seated or standing. The thin C shaped neck allows complete access to the entire fretboard, the treble side edge is also further rounded to give the feeling of a neck that has been well played in. Nexus has become one of the most popular Rjsc models.

Adaptable from string lengths and spacing’s to exotic and classic wood selection. Nexus is an ever-evolving model with subtle changes suited to each player’s form and style.
