New Gear: The BITE Pussycat Bass

The Austrian custom bass builder BITE Guitars presents another stunning showpiece, the Pussycat Bass.

The Pussycat Bass sports a bold leopard pattern spray-painted by hand seamlessly all around the body, scratchplate, and pickup.

Spray-painting is the latest artwork technique BITE has added to their eye-catching arsenal, which also includes digital print, lasering, inlays, decals, and textile wrapping.
