i recently stumbled upon these basses while searching the web. Just wondering if anybody has played one of these of knows anything about them or the company. They are beautiful hand-made basses. I hope one day i can own one of these, does anybody know the price range?

Anyways heres the website:www.ritter-basses.com, www.ritter-royals.com

They get thrown around here a bit whenever "sexiest bass guitar" gets mentioned. I would love the Flora Aurum, but it costs $100,000. Like I said to Boyce once, I figure a balaclava and a plane ticket to Germany is cheaper.


lol, yeah the Flora Aurum is indeed a nice looking bass. So are they all pretty much at the price level or are there and SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper?

I dunno. All the others have been sold but I don't know for how much. I do believe the Flora Aurum is credited to being the most expensive bass in the world (in terms of initial selling price. I can imagine a fair few famous people's basses going for a lot at auction).

The website "Most Expensive" claims that it is the most expensive bass ever sold as an initial price. But wen you have 24K gold inlays and 3 karot diamonts on the tuners i guess thats to be expected.

Some of those are made from a single piece of wood. The bolt on's have 10 bolts.

Beautiful basses. The Platinum Roya Concept was actually on Ebay a few months back. Went for just over 15,000 USD. Personally I'd take the Black Roya Concept or the Flora Platinum over the lot of them (the rest are a bit gaudy for my taste). If only there was a company that made Blacklight LEDs the Flora Platinum would be perfect.

OH MY GOD! THEY EXIST!

Now I just have to find someone who will put them in a bass.

wow! they are really cool. It looks similar to a bass les claypool was pictured with on the cover of a book i got a while bak, it is probably not, but,,,,,wow. i really like the blue fretless one with that tiny little horn on the bottom.

The 5-String CARRARA Finish has to be one of the most beautiful basses I've ever seen.

The StoneAge is prbly the most ridiculous bass I've ever seen

For such a high price, the royals could get a better website.

Exactly my thinking. That crown looks like it was made in MS paint.

wow. i would expect a $100,000 bass to be a neck-through


there's nothing wrong with a bolt on neck, especially when there are more bolts holding the neck to the body than there are holding a wheel onto my car

If you can class a several thousand pound bass a starter model... they're very much the epitome of mass produced boutique basses. Well, they aren't exactly mass produced. But you get what I mean. The cheapest on the site atm is over 4500 Euros.

a lot of those looked like butt, i would take a standard jazz bass anyday

then again they probably sound heavenly

i highly doubt your little friend has a ritter but then it's entirely possible, ask for pics then steal it.

A girl you say? I think you go out with her. Think. Its a girl, she plays bass and probably rich because she owns a Ritter. Anything else then your just getting greedy.
Now, a question of etiquette - as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

I just found a Ritter bass; that is fuzzy:
