A high-performance, full-scale electric bass with that unmistakable NS style, the NS Design WAV Radius WAV4 offers exceptional comfort, amazing playability, and powerful tone.

The WAV 4 RADIUS Bass was designed with comfort, performance, playability and tone in mind.

  • The headless neck design allows for a lighter feel and exceptional balance. In addition, the RADIUS body features ergonomic contours that'll sit perfectly against your torso when you play. The unique design allows your hands to fall naturally into place, and there is no neck dive. It feels incredibly comfortable and secure.

  • With its incredible sonic range, the RADIUS is the perfect bass for any gig or performance. It dishes out powerful, tight lows while offering amazing tonal clarity & harmonic integrity.

  • The WAV 4 RADIUS also offers incredible intonation from the first fret to the last. If you need to tune up, the bridge of the WAV 4 RADIUS allows for fast, accurate tuning on the fly.

  • The no-nonsense control layout allows you to dial in whatever sound you need, no matter what genre you play, or you can shape your sound and explore all of the sonic options offered by the WAV 4 RADIUS.

The NS Diradial Body sports a concave back profile for added comfort and stability against the player's torso. The front of the bass is more tightly radiused, which, in tandem with the body's general wedge shape, provides a more comfortable feel for the right hand. The sleek double-cutaway design allows for easy access to the higher frets.

Carved from maple, the WAV 4 RADIUS Bass boasts a one-piece bolt-on neck featuring that distinctive headless design. The neck features a full 34" scale length, 24 frets, and a familar, ultra-playable 15" radius while a volute offers thumb reference at the nut. The aluminum headplate sports string slots, making a headstock with heavy tuners unnecessary. The neck also comes equipped with a heavy-duty aluminum double-action reinforcing truss rod, which can be easily accessed from the top of the neck. The truss rod features a patented differential thread drive, which offers both precise relief control and rigidity.

For precise action and intonation adjustments, the NS Design WAV 4 RADIUS Bass carries an aluminum one-piece bridge and saddle assembly to offer extensive angle and height adjustment.

The NS Patented Tuning System allows you to tune your bass quickly and with ease. This groundbreaking system is a self-clamping precision tuning system that's integrated into the body. No special bass strings necessary! Any standard single-ball end, full-scale bass guitar string can be used. Tune your bass or change a string at the simple turn of a knob.

The NS Design WAV 4 RADIUS Bass comes loaded with an NS Polar/EMG High Impedance Dual Pickup System, which consists of an active 9 volt preamp and EQ, a magnetic custom EMG RADIUS pickup, and a bridge-mounted NS Polar pickup. The EMG pickup boasts a radiused top and magnetic structure to optimize the harmonics and tone from every string. The Polar pickup features a unique piezo design, which blends a tight and powerful low end with exceptional clarity. The WAV comes equipped with master volume and balance controls, along with separate tone controls for each pickup.

Cons

    Best Uses

      So different, but exceptional at the same time. Most unique guitars are terrible; however, this is no ordinary guitar. The punch resulting from this thing is incredible. Just a great mix of treble, mids, and bass. Try one out, you will enjoy it.
