Inspired by the Mirecourt produced instruments with sloping shoulders, this bass has a moderately flamed maple back and sides with a spruce top. Some dimensions:
lower bout width 27 1/2″
middle 14 1/2″
upper bout width 20″
rib depth at lower block 8 5/8″
rib depth at upper block 6 1/2″
distance from bottom of bass to top of button 44 7/8″
string length 41 3/8″
Set up with a Despiau bridge and Ullsperger endpin. The small upper bouts allow easier access to the high register while the wide lower bouts make up for some lost volume on top without being obtrusive. And the dimensions could make it a good fit physically for a smaller player who doesn’t want to settle for a smaller bass. Nice even tone and good projection.
Sold, but take a look at our Shen Maple “Classic” bass.
