This unique bass is made from figured blackwood and sitka spruce. The long. elegantly carved scroll is grafted maple. The C extension is ebony and is not drilled through the scroll. The bass shape is derived from the 2009 cornerless model, with enlarged upper bouts, and features a "Tucker" braced flatback and removable neck.

The bass has a mature and distinctive voice and a very manageable 41" string length.
