The Atelier Z Story

The Atelier Z Story

Crafting masterpiece quality bass guitars since 1989, Atelier Z has established a loyal following of bass players around the world. Using a combination of expertly cured Ash and Maple, Atelier Z artisans construct basses that are ergonomic, well balanced, lightweight, and articulate. The tonal pallet of these basses spans the entire spectrum from round and mellow to crystal clarity, regardless of genre, you’re able to dial in the perfect tone. You will experience satin and gloss finishes that are luxuriously smooth to the touch, rich in color, and durable to withstand the rigors of the road. The necks, available in gloss or satin, are perfectly contoured with a smooth taper and an “oh so familiar” feel. Bound fingerboards, expert inlays, Gotoh tuning machines, and your choice of 20, 21, or 24 fret models ensures a neck suited for everyone’s taste. 

Atelier Z basses are equipped with either their own proprietary pickups, Seymour Duncan, Delano, or Aguilar pickups depending on the model. 

Like the painter’s palate of colors, the preamp choices offered by Atelier Z allow the player to sculpt whatever tone is necessary to suit the groove. Utilizing Atelier Z’s Original preamp,  Aguilar, or Bartolini preamps, crafting your personal signature tone has never been easier.

Each bass is shipped safely nestled in Atelier Z’s own custom soft case designed for portability, protection, and storage of necessary accessories.
