The D.A. Vinci Nea model is a 34 and 35 inch scale solid body electric bass guitar, designed for versatile bassists – from rock, hard’n’heavy and metal to blues, jazz and beyond. It comes in both 4 string and 5 string versions, and is packed with 2 single coil pickups, a 3 band EQ, active preamp and a volume and balance pot.
Nea has a simple design with deep contours to enhance its ergonomics and a shallow D profile neck suited for most players.
The core design features an Alder, Swamp ash or Mahogany body, with a Maple or Ash (quilted or flamed, roasted or natural) top. The neck goes all the way through the body which gives you endless sustain and unparalleled vibration transference, and comes in different laminates of ash, maple, purple heart, wenge or walnut.
This tonewood combination provides a rich resonance and covers the entire EQ spectrum very well, coupled with a 3 band EQ your choice of tones is endless. Nea has a number of different pickup options to select from and all of our pickups are handwound in-house.
The D.A. Vinci Nea comes in either a high-gloss or matte polyurethane finish that is extremly durable, doesn’t yellow over time and will protect your guitar for years to come.
This model is available for custom orders as well, and you can choose your own tonewoods to fit your style and playing, as well as the color and bridge type, and can be ordered with a different combination of pickups to suit your style.
Sound is the most important consideration for D.A. Vinci guitars, and all of our guitars are tuned to perfection when it comes to choise of wood, hardware and electronics.
Through extensive designing, experimenting and trial and error, each one of our models is finely tuned and crafted with a specific purpose in mind.
Combining state-of-the art technologies and precision craftsmanship with the use of the best available tonewoods, the D.A. Vinci Nea guitar is no fluke.
D.A. Vinci Contact Bridge
Each one of our guitars features our own designed and manufactured in house D.A. Vinci contact bridge that is machined from a solid block of aluminium and brass, and then finished in a number of different finishes such as gold plated, black, nickel, chrome and anodized Al.
Machining the bridge from a solid piece of aluminium ensured its tensile strength is optimal and can endure even the heaviest gauges of strings and their pressure. It also contributes to the sound ressonance and transfering the vibration of the strings throughout the body and neck.
