Handcrafted premium bass guitars made in Germany by master luthier Nico Schack
The new 2017 model
As a luthier who listens closely to the demands of the bass players Nico decided to come up with a singlecut model. What he was aiming for was to create a fusion of the physical advantages a singlecut instrument has to offer with an appealing design. The result is the brand new N-FINITY model. It is a rich, full and warm sounding instrument that provides almost endless sustain. With it’s beautiful hand curved flowing lines it is an piece of art with that Schack has taken comfortable ergonomic shaping, balance and playability as well as classy design to the next level.

When Schack Guitars was founded in 1981 it started as a manufactory building electric guitars, acoustic guitars and bass guitars. Pretty soon Schack decided to focus on building premium bass guitars and introduced a lot of inovations irreplaceable for the market today. When Nico Schack joined the company he had access to years of experience about the process of building world class instruments and started to adding his own ideas and improvements to the knowledge that was past on to him.
of passion - experience - craftmanship
The passion that I'm driven by is to make every bass guitar I build to be the best that I've ever made and to fulfill the high requirements of each individual player as best as I can. To achieve this, I consistently bring in new ideas, make improvements and small adjustments here and there, welcome evolution and growth and persistently pursue my way forward. I don't settle.

Der Schack Unique V lässt bei Fans von modernen Edelbässen kaum Wünsche offen. Besonders begeistert bin ich vom überaus hohen Spielkomfort, den der Bass dank seiner durchdachten Architektur bietet.
A seriously impressive five-string that delivers on all counts, with a tonal palette to keep even the most ardent tone technician busy.

Nimmt man kurz einen anderen Bass (im Band Setting) zur Hand, vermisst man dieses gnadenlose Fundament sofort - süchtig machend!

Eine Steigerung scheint kaum möglich. Von satten Bässen bis zu brillianten Höhen, von kernigen Mitten bis singenden Flageoletts, alles ist drin.
