This is a hand made Custom Shop instrument. Custom Color Vintage Cream Superlite Paulownia body with Maple neck and fingerboard, figured Koa inlays, lightweight Hipshot tuners, Seymour Duncan Apollo pickups and a NOS vintage paper in oil capacitor from Ukraine in the tone circuit matched to this bass guitar. Very lightweight and resonant, this bass has that low mid growl heard on stage and in the best recordings throughout the 60's, 70's and 80's!
We are producing these as our version of vintage Fender instruments made in the 50's. 60's and early 70's. Highly sought after original vintage instruments can bring well over $10,000 and taking them on stage and into studios is a serious risk. These Custom Shop instruments are light weight, resonant and have the feel, playability and tone of the old treasured instruments. They can be used for touring and recording without the risk of loss or damage.
We are a FULL SERVICE shop, have a expert repair and Custom Modification department as well as an on-site Custom Shop for in-house instrument builds. Guitar Villa is run by musicians, techs and recording engineers and we are here to help you with any product selection or use questions you may have. We can advise on the best value at any budget.
