Meshell Ndegeocello is a singer-songwriter and bassist known for her eclecticism, and to honor her, Reverend Guitars has created a bass that embraces her nature. Dubbed the Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship Bass, this four-string is designed to be versatile—but with as few controls as possible.

That comes down to a few things, namely the pickup and the bridge. The split-coil P-Blade pickup captures the traditional P Bass thump, but Reverend has voiced it to have more sustain, low-end response, clarity and volume. And with the Lock Down bridge, you can either top-load your strings or send them through the body. Even the “Volume” and “Tone” knobs on the bass are stacked, with a center detent on each dial.

Like all Reverend guitars, this bass has a korina body, whose inherent resonance produces a “lively, responsive” tone rich in harmonics, according to the brand. Other tonewoods on the bass are more familiar: It has a five-piece walnut/korina neck, on which a 12-inch-radius rosewood fretboard sits.

The Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship is available in Midnight Black, Pearl White, and Unity (which bears the colors of the Pan-African flag).

The Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship lists for $1,199. More information at reverendguitars.com.
