 "Chilli" is a 5-strings fretted bass made under the "Equilibrium" base, but with wood materials selection and some additional particular details, personally chosen by the bassist of the "ASAP" (As Soon as Possible) band, Plamen Ivanov.
 The changes that I we made wasn't so much and many. We changed the scale - we extended it to 35 inches, we changed a little bit the neck dimensions, and I made the pick-ups more low sounding.
 
 Well, here is it:





Neck specks:

- One piece solid extra grade radial sawn Walnut;
- Indian Rosewood fingerboard;
- 24 Jumbo frets;
- 35" scale;
- Binding - white celluloid plus side position marks.



Pick ups:
 Hand-made single coil KD pick-ups are made by epoxy technology and with Rosewood application on the topside.

Bridge:
 Completely hand-made bridge designed specially for maximum compatibility the "Arch" profiled body of this bass.
Every part and detail of the bridge is a 100% hand-made, which is a guarantee for unique appearance and functionality.

Hardware: Nickel

Finish: Three component fine polished, high gloss, scratch resistible and with perfect transparency polyester varnish.



Body:
The top and back side of the body is made of book matched heavy figured Maple, the core is book matched Walnut. All connections are separated by Walnut and Maple veneer for active contrast.
The lid of the electronics box is also made from the same wood pieces as the backside body.



Body profile:  "ARCH" profile body.
Building basses non-flat body basses is the biggest challenge for KD. Most of the models are with the same or similar style body profiles.





Headstock:
Non-symmetrical headstock with elegant rounded corners with fine polished KD antirust steel logo in the middle of the top side.
Heavy figured Flamed (Curly) Maple used for application.
Hand-made wooden lid made of the same Maple wood for covering the truss-rod hole.

Nut:
Specially hand-made Black Ebony nut, width - 48mm.



Machine heads:
This is standard machine head set which includes only new style decorative antitrust steel material for lids.
The small woodcarving improvisation completes the headstock's design.

Well, that's it!  Cool
