Austrian custom bass builder BITE Guitars has made its mark with a number of unique features since 2019, one of which is the distinctive 2-left-2-right headstock. BITE head Wolfgang: "Our 2+2 headstock has raised quite some eyebrows. It's straight, not angled, but still comes on a bolt-on bass with a pickguard, quite contrary to familiar sight patterns. And it has this bite mark which stands for our proprietary sound that bites through any band mix: strong and well-defined. A 4-in-line headstock was requested by many. Happy to oblige! Mind you, it is not replacing our signature 2+2 headstock. This is just an optional offer. Needless to say, it has a bite mark too. We actually had much fun finding the right spot for placing the bite, many designs went straight out the window."
