Important comment relative to weight: Please be aware that the weight of the bass is not suited to every player. Due to the high density of our "Sagne Valley" ash, the bass exceeds 5kgs / 11lbs, yet what it gains in weight, it also gives back in tonal quality. It is a hard choice to make through the internet, so drop in our shop to come and try it.
