The Vintage VCB430N in gloss natural brings us an electro acoustic bass guitar with style, feel and pure tone! Made with great materials and top class electronics it's got everything it needs to impress you and your audience.

With a solid Spruce top it's got loads of resonance and the Mahogany woods on the back and sides just add that slightly dark tone which aids its overall big sound. The Mahogany back & sides with black and white binding just sets the look off, it's stunning! Beautiful grains running throughout! With the addition of the Flamed Maple top it looks amazing! The body cutaway also adds some visual appeal whilst aiding playability too!

In terms of playability it plays well, it's nice and easy to play most things that you would on an electric bass. You've got 20 frets here which you can make the most of thanks to the cutaway body design. The satin neck finish makes it super easy to move up and down the fingerboard, unhindered by sticky gloss! The neck profile takes the soft 'V' shape which feels quite vintage but just right at the same time.

The electronics in this bass come from Fishman, a top class pickup and preamp system that's got a built in tuner and a 4 band EQ! So whether you're simply playing acoustically or want to plug it in for an amplified tone you can and it's going to sound great either way.

A really nice instrument here from Vintage that will last years and years. Built to last, built to play, built to sound amazing. Come try it out in store or buy online for FREE UK delivery!
