03 Oct
October 3, 2015

This is Shen’s latest design and uses the same rib outline as their hybrid basses.  This one has a spruce top, maple ribs and the back is made from two piece mahogany ( looks like African Khaya or Sapele) The wood figure in the back is very nice with flecking similar to beech.

Some dimensions:

string length 41 1/4″

lower bout width 26 1/4″

upper bout width 20″

rib depth at lower block 8 1/4

rib depth at upper block 6 1/8″

length from bottom of bass to top of back button 44 3/4″

The setup includes a Despiau bridge, Ullsperger endpin and Evah Pirazzi Weich strings. This good sounding bass would make a great match for a serious high school or college level player.

$4500 with bag.
