D'mark Guitars is a Brazilian guitar brand that has been around since 1998.
The brand is highly regarded in South America, and in recent years, its name has been spreading to Europe and the United States as well.

This model is the Alpha of the MASTER SERIES, specially built for Japan on order from GIB. (Therefore, "Custom Built For Japan Only" is engraved on the back of the head.)

) The beautiful bass is made of a combination of fine woods from Brazil, a country with abundant forest resources.

Beautiful quilted ash is used for the body top.
This is a super S grade.

The back and core are of a complex configuration, but are mainly made of Brazilian mahogany and Brazilian cedar.

The neck is a 3-piece of maple and a wood called Muiracatiala.
Muiracatuara is an unfamiliar wood, but it originates from Central and South America and is extremely hard.
It is therefore useful not only for furniture and flooring, but also for knives and guns.

The fingerboard is made of a wood called imbuia.
It has a moderate hardness and luster, making it the perfect wood for the fingerboard.

It is characterized by a smooth playing feel and has a special quality of playability.
The sound is beautiful and eloquent, resonating quietly and far, as is typical of a thru-neck.

There is a nuance that seamlessly connects the low B string to the G string, allowing the player's musical sensibilities to be fully expressed.

Although South American instruments are high quality and unique, many of them are too unique, and many brands have been difficult to find in electric basses, which are mainly North American in style.

However, this brand, which has been gaining recognition in recent years, mixes North American styles to create a more approachable finish.

Although the thru-neck style has become more popular, this is an excellent product that may cause you to take a new look at the style again.
We think you will be surprised in a good way, and we hope you will give it a try.
