Stimulated by the standard of excellence and quality of Jens Ritter Instruments, a wealthy client asked the German luthier to create a truly unique bass. In fact, it ended up becoming the most expensive tool in the world, thanks to its precious materials and its very particular production techniques.
This is the Ritter Royal Flora Aurum, a bass whose body is carved from a single piece of maple wood, solid and very rare. The real gem is the nut, shaped with the ivory of a mammoth dating back to ten thousand years ago. Finally, the fretboard is decorated with a floral inlay - 24 carat gold. Considering the maple body, the ivory nut, the 24-karat gold fingerboard - and also the bridge and knobs of the same workmanship - it's easy to imagine that the Ritter Royal Flora Aurum is worth a lot. The unique and handmade bass by Ritter Instruments is further enhanced by platinum elements and various 3.3 carat diamonds.
All this - combined with a refined and sophisticated workmanship - brings the value of the bass to touch the peaks of an amazing record. The wealthy client who commissioned the instrument from the German luthier Jens Ritter, in fact, had to pay the beauty of 100 thousand dollars to take home his Flora Aurum.
