Netherlands luthier Rikkers introduces the new Acoustiline acoustic-electric bass, available in 4, 5 and 6-string versions.
The Rikkers Acoustiline is inspired by Rikkers’ double basses and features an archtop spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, but other wood options are also available. Inside the instrument, the spruce bracing has an X shape and on the upper side, 6 metal tubes replace the traditional “F” holes usually carved on the top.
The Acoustiline also sports a two-piece quatersawn maple set neck with an asymmetrical shape (it’s thinner under the G string and thicker under the B one), which, according to Rikkers, improves the handling of the instrument.
The fingerboard and bridge are made of rosewood, and a D-Tar piezo is included.
Just like the wood choices, Rikkers offers various natural and colored finishes ; a left-handed version is also available without additional cost.
- 4-string Acoustiline: 3950€
- 5-string version: 4150€
- 6-string version: 4350€
