To meet the needs of bass players who want increased upper register access, Palatino introduces the upright Billy Bass with treble-side cutaway.
The Billy Bass provides the classic thump that upright players are looking for with the extra bonus of access to the upper fingerboard area. The Billy Bass produces resonant bowed tones thanks to the spruce top, but maintains classic warmth and crisp tonality from the maple back, sides and neck. The ebony fingerboard provides excellent durability against string wear. Tyrolean-style bass tuners keep the strings in tune for serious slapping, popping, and upper-neck playing. The adjustable maple bridge makes it easy to install a piezo pickup for amplified playing.
Finished in a stylish black lacquer, the Billy Bass comes with a generously padded carrying bag and is fully set up in the USA. The list price is $1499.99. Available Now.
