RSB1-5 Bowable Bass 17

This is a bowable bass. The neck is built to feel like an upright bass. It has an adjustable tailpin like a cello so you can sit and play it like a cello or put a strap on it and play as a bass guitar.
The top, back, and neck are mahogany while the fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece are made from maple. The scale length is 34 inch. It has an Artec Piezo pickup inserted in an adjustable bridge and Artec preamp mounted on side facing the player. Preamp has 3 band equalizer.
This bass has the sound and feel of an upright bass but is much easier to handle and transport.
Hardshell cello case included.
