This is Shen’s oil varnished version of their “workhorse” laminated sb80 bass and we’ve had great luck with this model. This instrument is well made and looks great. It has a good sounding “thump” and sustain for pizzicato playing, and the bass is designed for comfortable arco playing as well. They also make a gamba cornered version.
Nice setup includes a Despiau bridge, upgraded endpin and your choice of Zyex or Helicore strings.
With Shen bag.
