New Shen SB150 5/8 hybrid bass

November 28, 2017

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.

Some dimensions:

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.
