Solid well flamed maple back and sides and a tightly grained solid spruce top give this bass a tonal richness not found in other basses at this price point. A 41.5" mensure combined with nice sloping shoulder keep this bass easy to play while still having the volume of larger instruments. Only available in 3/4 size.
