This stunning, retro-inspired bass guitar features a spruce top, along with a flame maple body for a powerful projection with crisp articulation. Its hollow body design offers a superb resonant tone when used acoustically, and the pair of elegant F sound holes allow the natural sound to be projected forward. Players can benefit from the single cutaway design which provides easier access to those unreachable frets.
