We have a new Shen 200 level round back bass.  This is the model they call the “classic” which is similar in form to their hybrid basses, but fully carved.

This bass has a spruce top with maple sides and back and the maple version is a new project for Shen. Nice reddish  golden brown varnish.

Some dimensions:

string length 41 5/16″

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″

Set up with a Despiau bridge, Ullsperger 10mm standard and Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Weich strings. This bass is a bit brighter in tone compared to the Shen Classic with a mahogany back. Smaller profile neck.

 

$5000 with cover
