LS52

Maple / Brown-Burst
Introduction

After going through prototypes showcased at trade shows, we finally release renewed version of STR SIERRA LS models in November 2018. The renewed SIERRA series offers more variety including 4 string, 5string, passive electronics models, and even ones with LED fingerboard markers. More finish options including translucent ones are availalble. 
LS52 comes equiped with Aguilar Hot jazz pickups and OBP-3 preamp, Gotoh machineheads and bridge made in Japan. Both maple fingerboard and blackwood fingerboard are decorated with beautiful abalone dot markers.
Precisely crafted in Japan by experienced builders who trained under Satoru Yatsuzuka. 

 

Aguilar Hot Jazz pickup

 
With their larger, 6mm magnets and over-wound design, the AG 4 and 5J-HOT pickups have a hotter output that loves to push the input of your amplifier with a tone that is big and loud with thundering lows. Despite their sonic onslaught, the HOT pickups will retain all the dynamics of your playing style.

Aguilar OBP-3 Preamp

 
The OBP-3 is Aguilar’s most flexible onboard preamp design, providing +/-18dB of cut and boost at 40Hz, +/- 16dB of cut and boost at either 400Hz or 800Hz and +/- 16dB of treble cut and boost at 6.5 kHz. With the 3 band EQs and mid frequency switch, you will have a great control over tone

 

Maple 3 piece neck

 
The Sierra bass features 3 piece hard maple neck which is   sturdier and resistant to warping than a one piece neck.  

 

STR Semi Hard Gig Bag

 
STR Semi hard gig bag is reinforced from the inside with hard material to protect a bass. It can be carried on your back with two shoulder straps

Blackwood

 
Blackwood is a technologically modified wood that exhibits the properties and appearance of Ebony. Made from natural products, not plastic, it offers simialr density and blackness to ebony.  Both maple board and blackwood board are decorated with abalone dot inlays.
