Brand new! Old growth redwood & rosewood fretless bass

This gorgeous acoustic bass guitar is built from a reclaimed local old-growth redwood top, Honduras rosewood sides & back, curly maple binding/heelcap, ebony bridge/fretboard/peghead overlay, and a Honduras mahogany neck. The redwood & rosewood are the same as David’s recent redwood-rosewood parlor guitar.

Its 31″ scale results in easy playability and reach, while still holding onto its dynamic punch.

Like its cousin parlor guitar, this bass also features a soundport, on the player’s side upper bout. The soundport acts as a monitor, directing sound waves towards the player’s ears as well as from the front aperture.

FOR SALE – $7,500. Price includes hardshell case; tax and/or shipping extra. Contact us if you’re interested in this instrument.
