One hundred percent of all basses and guitars are designed on the horizontal plane, but played on the angular plane. This requires the player to lift and hold the neck in a proper playing position. This constant effort results in unnecessary strain and stress and often results in “Repetitive Stress Injuries”.  

All Artisan basses utilize a patented ANSIR Technology™ angled neck design which places the fretboard in a perfect playing position with no effort by the player, either seated or standing. This anatomically correct design:

  • reduces stress on the wrist, elbow, neck, and back

  • allows faster fretting

  • mitigates/prevents injuries

  • makes a difficult task easier

Less pressure on the fretting hand, equals less effort in playing.  Medical science proves, even slight pressure over the course of time has damaging effects on the human body.



Artisan basses are designed from a United States patented innovation that keeps the body of the bass on a horizontal plane; the neck is manufactured into the body at a 42-degree angle, askew of center.



Artisan basses are the most comfortable, natural feeling instruments you will ever play! 



Here is an Artisan bass placed on top of a traditionally designed instrument. Gone are the days of neck dive, of wasting energy holding the neck in a proper playing position. With an Artisan bass the neck will stay in a perfect playing position with no effort on the part of the player, freeing up the fretting hand to fret. You dont realize how much effort holding the neck up takes until you don't have to do it anymore!

There are no other angled neck or similarly designed instruments on the market. Artisan basses are easier to learn on, practice on and advance on. Experience the amazing difference Artisan & ANSIR Technology™ will make in your playing!
