Camisha Ruffins, Bassist

Introducing Akuma

today I’m showing Akuma, my MTD635hybrid. This particular 635 has an ash body and a Moses graphite neck (0_0) that’s so playable that i didnt even mind the bastardization of such a good product. With standard tuning it adds a refreshing alternative into my low end arsenal.

Look up MTD and the acronym’s dissolved and expanded into the name of a legend amongst bass luthiers and players. Michael Tobias has been successful in custom creating basses and guitars as well as mass producing a good product (apparently so as I’m a 2x Kingston abuser).

Akuma
•Japanese for demon or devil or Gouki
•works perfectly for the look of the bass
•(in my book) breaking such a cardinal sin with the hybridness I thought that the term was fitting
•yes, a Street Fighter character holds the same name. Coincidence? I think not!
[quick reference to Dos/Don’ts of names]
