Moses  Carbon Graphite USA Starhawk 5- and 6-string Basses:

 

Handsome, beautiful sounding and wonderfully balanced Moses Starhawk basses have many individually designed and unique features.  All are a part of basses finished with expert workmanship, and a supreme set-up.  They offer the warm, focused and powerful, tight, and sustainful growl that Moses necks are well-know for.

The basses feature premiere one- or two-piece deep relief carve-top Starhawk bodies.  The bodies have a totally smooth and durable, meticulously hand rubbed gun stock oil finish.

The Starhawk 5 neck is Moses Carbon Graphite USA model MZC-155; a 24 fret, 35” scale, 16” radius, deep-set heel neck with 17mm spacing at bridge, a nut width of 1.81” and 24th fret width of 2.87”.  The neck is thin, fast, stable and durable.  The Starhawk 6 neck is Moses Carbon Graphite USA model MJZ-156; a 24 fret, 35” scale, 16” radius neck with 17mm spacing at bridge, a nut width of 2.0625″ and a 24th fret width of 3.375″.  All Starhawk basses can be made as headless instruments.  The Starhawk 5 may be made with a 33 1/2″/36″ Slanted Fret MZC-5 neck.

Electronics include:

Bartolini active 5- or 6-String string jazz bass pickups.  Alternately we utilize Bartolini Soapbar pickups, or can incorporate any other pickup style that you may request.

These are complimented with Bartolini active 9 volt electronics, with master volume, stacked treble/bass, and pickup blend potentiometers.

Alternately we prefer EMG active 18 volt and Aguilar systems.

Hardware includes:

Hipshot Ultralite tuning machines, bridge and Straplocks.

For the headless variant, we incorporate ABM mono-rail bridge tuners.

The basses are usually strung with flat wound stainless steel D’Addario strings.

Starhawk basses weigh a moderate 8.5 lbs./3.86 Kg. to 10.0 lb./4.55 Kg.  This is dependent on the wood chosen and the 5- or 6-string model made.

These basses are usually sold and shipped with new SKB hard shell cases.

Pricing generally vary from $2,800 to $3,600 USD, dependent on each bass’ definitive specifications.
