Johnny Christ says in this video at (1:09), “I knew that I wanted a classic pianic [sic] sound as well as a guttural, clanky distorted growl to it. And I wanted that all in one bass whereas before I’d have to switch basses out whether I’m at the studio or on tour to get those two different sounds. So I just wanted to incorporate those two things together and make the bass look awesome too."
