New Shen SB200 3/4 Willow

July 13, 2012

New  carved 3/4 Willow flat back bass from Shen.   The back and sides are made from willow with a spruce top. Slightly convex flat back with X bracing design to minimize the effects of differential wood movement. Check out the web for reviews and further discussion of this popular bass. The size and shape lends itself to many different playing situations.

Despiau bridge, Ullsberger endpin, 41 1/4″ string length.

This one has a bit more red color in the varnish than I’ve seen from Shen.

Sold, but another one is on the way.
