Description

This Gold Tone Micro Bass in all Mahogany represents a big leap ahead of other similar small-scale instruments, thanks to the extended scale length, which not only provides much better intonation, but also contributes volume to the mix. So much so that it can be played either amplified or acoustically. The Aquila Thundergut silicone strings lie at the heart of the design, and must be heard to be believed. They provide this small fretless instrument with a warm, natural tone that could easily be mistaken for an upright bass! It even has a sloped "ergo-glide" top for added comfort. Comes with gigbag.

I've been really enjoying the silicone string-based instruments that we've recently added to the lineup, and these Gold Tone Micro Basses are the natural next step in their evolution. The longer scale length makes a big difference in the feel -- it plays like a real guitar rather than a toy. Plus, having the cutaway make a big difference in accessing the higher frets. Better watch out, I'm gunning for ya, Stanley Clarke!
 
I think these are amazing instruments. The tone is just right for playing bass in an ensemble and the pickup sounds great. The built-in tuner really helps since it's hard to hear the pitch on the lower of the silicone strings. My only negative comment would be that they need to use black strings instead of white and maybe include a bag of powder to keep the strings from feeling sticky. The fretless bass is especially addicting and only needs some kind of talcum powder or baby powder for the strings to make it easier to slide. Of course, that could make them look messy, but it should work. If I buy one, I will update you all with my experiments.
