The CORSAIR™ is designed to incorporate those great ideas into one bass that is rooted in the new millennium. The original basses were considerably larger than the solid body guitars, probably because acoustic basses were so much larger. There is no need for such a large body, so the overall size is scaled down, making the instrument much more comfortable.
The headstock is much smaller and angled back. This offers three benefits. First, the neck becomes much lighter. Second, the angle produces more string bearing pressure at the nut, improving string performance. Thirdly, the small area does not rob energy from the string, diminishing the performance.
