Acoustic Bass 17"|
4- & 5-string
Given our full range of Acoustic guitars, from high-tuned to baritone, it was a natural progression to complete our Acoustic line with a bass. But this is much more than just an enlarged guitar — we worked hard to give our Acoustic Bass the same clear, rich, and strong tone our Baritones are known for.

With a 17" wide and 5.5" deep body, the Acoustic Bass has the airspace to deliver a true fundamental with depth and authority. A standard 34" scale feels immediately familiar to electric players (alternate scales available upon request).
The warmth and natural presence of the mahogany body give this bass a very vibrant midrange that 'cuts' and lets it be heard, even where other basses might get lost in a mix. Plugged in, this bass is a beast — a huge, responsive tone with unmistakably acoustic flavor. The 'air' is there in every note.
Careful design, top-shelf materials, and hand-tuned bracing yield full, rich, and musical tones from the lowest notes all the way up into the beautifully balanced upper range.
Available in cutaway, non-cutaway and symmetrical oval-hole body styles Available in 4-string or 5-string, fretted or fretless.
