Matthew Garrison is a house hold name and legend in his own right as one of the top musicians and bass players around. He has performed and recorded with some of the most recognizable artists in the industry such as Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Joni Mitchell, Steve Coleman, Pat Metheny, John Mclaughlin, The Gil Evans Orchestra, John Scofield, Chaka Khan, The Saturday Night Live Band, and many others. 

Matt approached us in the mid 90s during his quest to find a bass to compliment his unique playing style. Initially Matt was attracted to the Imperial bass, however after numerous modifications were made at his request, the Imperial was transformed into a significantly new design. The Matt Garrison Signature model is distinguished by several important features including a 33″ scale, Ash neck, Ebony fingerboard, 26 frets and a finger ramp between the pickups to better facilitate Matt’s style of light-touch multi-finger style playing.  The body, made of highly select Walnut, is light and diminutive, providing this bass with an overall warm tone while retaining a pointed clarity to the notes. The shorter scale and quick response makes this bass incredibly effortless to play.
