Brian Moore Guitars is expanding its i2000 Series bass line at the 2002 Nashville NAMM show.
Model i4p ($1,495) and Model i5p ($1,595) both feature RMC piezo pickups in the bridge giving bass players a whole new tonal dimension that Brian Moore Guitars calls "iHarmonics." A piezo volume knob allows the bassist to blend the RMC harmonic rich tone with the standard magnetic pickups. Each instrument comes with a stereo "Y" cable so the piezo signal can be sent to a separate acoustic amplifier or `full range' system.
The i2000 series basses feature the comfort contoured body with a figured maple top, five piece neck thru design with ivoroid binding, sculpted headstock, and innovative rear output jack.
According to Brian Moore Guitars president, Patrick Cummings, "Our market research shows that bass players want many of the features available on our guitars such as the 'piezo acoustic tone.' The i4p and i5p gives the bassist an expanded range of exciting new tonal possibilities."
