Inspired by Juan Alderete, and reimagined by Carey Nordstrand, the Acinonyx (genus for Cheetah) is a well-thought-out, modern reinterpretation of the Goya Panther. Carey sorted out the design flaws of the Goya with the problem-solving prowess for which he is known. String pull, switch assignments sorted out, Carey developed this bass with ease of tone selection and overall playability in mind, but the ultimate goal is for the bass to be as fun to play as driving a race car.
