Spalted maple-top body adds a touch of exotic beauty.
The Traben Neo Limited 4S pairs a spalted maple top with innovative Traben features and a more traditionally-styled bridge. You get modern, in-your-face tone thanks to active three-band EQ, a graphite-reinforced neck, two-way adjustable truss rod, and the big Traben Neo bridge. Constructed with a basswood body, five-ply maple/walnut bolt-on neck, rosewood fretboard, abalone dot inlays, chrome-plated brass nut, and two soapbar pickups.
Traben's unique philosophy for building electric basses centers around their large bridges for bigger, badder tone. These bigger bridges are designed to have more mass and more bridge-to-body contact for added resonance in the body.

I've owned this bass for about a year and a half and it has since been my bass of choice, just as Traben has been my bass company of choice since I bought an Array Premium 4 three years (my first Traben). Most of the basses Traben offers now weren't offered back when I got the Array. I quickly decided to get another Traben when they released the product line they now offer... what a great decision!They had definately stepped up their game when they released their next generation of basses. This Neo far surpassed the Array in every aspect.The electronic are now pretty high quality (only beaten by Music Man and some Fenders), the EQ and dual soap bar pick-ups are fantastic. The neck is long, thin, and extremely playable; the long scale makes fingering, tapping, and slapping easier than ever. The Neo's huge bridge, with lots of contact to the body, yields massive sustain specially when utilizing the string through holes. Lastly, the overall detail and quality of the bass is far beyond anything in its price range.Its a top notch, high-end bass for a beginner bass price. Makes me wonder why Squier and Rogue basses are still being bought when you can get this for the same price and it be such a better bass.Try a Traben, the only thing you'll regret is not buying one sooner. I know I did.
When I first saw them on the scene years ago with the flames I didn't give them the time of day. I used to be a Fender enthusiast until I grabbed a Spector Legend and now that I've bought a Traben as in 3 months ago I even changed my email addresses to Trabenbassist because I was that impressed!!This happens to be one of the finest basses I've played. The way they constructed the neck into the body makes it absolutely perfect to play the higher notes! This is the best damn bass I've played on!
