The Miezo 18 Rhonda Smith Signature.
Rhonda Smith needs no introduction. You know her well, you know her work with a long list of the biggest names in the industry - Prince, Jeff Beck, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, T. I., Erykah Badu, Patti Austin, Patrice Rushen, Brenda Russell, Lee Ritenour, Larry Graham, Patti Labelle, Little Richard, Najee, Candy Dulfer, Rachel Farrell, Kirk Whalum George Clinton. And if all that weren't enough, Rhonda found the time to record two albums - Intellipop, and RS2 - and pursue other great projects, clinics, speeches - you name it. Like all true creative minds, she can't stay put.
It was a great pleasure and a honour working with Rhonda on this project and the outcome is a sight to behold: the Rhonda Smith Signature Miezo 18 is a beautiful, beautiful instrument with the looks and the voice to send your jaw to the floor.
Thank you so much Rhonda and keep it funky!
Maurizio and the MüB Team.
Rhonda's Miezo18 is as beautiful as it is powerful and versatile.
A stunning ebony top with a perfectly matched fretboard harvested from the same laminate gives this instrument a snappy, clear and articulate voice. The padauk body adds a stylish contrast with its deep red hue and provides an even tonal palette.All wraped up in slick high gloss finish.
Evo frets fit right in, both visually and tone wise, together with the Bartolini Singles p-up/Aguilar OBP3 - one of our go-to combo here at MüB.
Play it with a light touch, sweet chords and arpeggio, or dig in, go all funky and growl, solo in the high register with amazing clarity.
Funky slappers out there will love the rounded end of the fretboard, a neat detail that prevents you thumb from hitting the frets, keeping your slap tone full and clear. The extra strap button provides balance and angle that feels even closer to that of a full scale bass. Indeed, Rhonda's Miezo has it all.
