The TB10 bass is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. It is hard to get as a right handed instrument, but even more as a left handed so we are happy to have one here.
A unique hybrid crossover bass guitar, it retains the 34” scale but the fretboard has the radius of an upright bass. This allows you to play completely different. It can be played as a regular bass guitar or as an upright with the tail pin extension peg. If you set the endpin lower you can hold the instrument between you legs like you would do on a cello.
This fretless instrument produces a tone heavy and fundamental with the rich harmonics you would expect from an upright bass.
Includes Takamine’s Palathetic™ pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. The electronic performance package is beyond state of the art with the Cool Tube® Preamp - the first and only tube preamp in an acoustic guitar.
This bass has been used in the studio for 3 months. No gigs at all. A luthier added fretlines and dots on the edge of the fingerboard for ease of playing.
Excellent luxury case included (handle needs to be replaced)
