We have a new Shen 5/8 size hybrid bass with a carved top and laminated back and sides. This one has some interesting figure in the spruce top and nice golden brown oil varnish.
lower bout width 25 1/4″
upper bout width 20″
rib depth at lower block 7 7/8″
rib depth at upper block 6 3/8″
length of back from lower point to the top of the button 43″
string length 39 1/2″
This bass is nicely set up with a Despiau bridge, Ullsperger tubular endpin and D’addario Kaplan strings. A good size for a smaller person or someone looking for a bass that’s very easy to get around on.
