Description

Stephen worked closely with Mark Hamilton from Ash to create a custom bass guitar ahead of their European Tour.

Ash’s new album “Islands” portrays an image of Skellig Michael on their artwork – a mountain situated 8 miles off the coast of Portmagee in South West Kerry, Ireland. Rising from the sea, Skellig Michael towers 714ft above sea level. This custom bass appropriately features a hand carving of Skellig Michael and with an entirely unique body shape this new bass guitar is something we were very proud to present to Mark.

This bass made us smile that much, we decided we couldn’t not develop a new bass using inspiration from this build. Without wanting to loose that “limited edition” touch, we only made 12 guitars in this finish…once these 12 are gone, they are gone.

Ruach Developed Pickups 

When this bass started it’s life on a sketchpad in the Ruach office in Northern Ireland, it became apparent very quickly that it was going to be something different in character than anything else out there. With this, we set out to create a set of single coils to partner the guitar in design with the perfect pickups – and we are proud to call them our own.

Time Capsule

At Ruach, each of our electric guitars and basses come with a unique Time Capsule. Search for your guitar here; and discover its creation.

Body Shape

We believe this new body we’ve designed is something quite special – something fresh, but not too diverse. This was developed over months in our workshop in Northern Ireland. Small, light and ready for some serious use.

Neck

We hand select each piece of wood for our necks to ensure they meet our strict requirements. The wood is stabilised using our in-house conditioning room, and we then cradle the necks over a 30 day manufacturing period; resulting in exceptionally strong and stable necks. We partnered up this guitar with a 25.5” scale, 22 medium sized frets and a maple neck and fretboard.

Hardware + Electronics 

This Guitar appropriately comes fitted with a Schaller Bridge, Schaller Machine Heads and a TUSQ Nut. CTS Pots are housed inside a Copper Faraday Cage to ensure no unwanted frequencies creep into your signal. All of this combined with the attention to detail throughout each and every production process leaves us with an instrument with immense sustain and tone.

We ship the Guitar out to you for free, and if you’re not happy with it within 30 days after delivery – we will arrange our courier to collect it from you and refund you upon its return to our factory.
