Three-Quarter Size Bass Guitar, Marked ‘Seconds’
Full-size bass guitars are difficult to play for children and those with small fingers, due to the distances between the frets. This professional quality bass guitar from Rapid solves the problem simply by reducing the finger board length, without compromising on the sound quality. Please note that the body and headstock are the same size as they would be for a regular bass guitar.
These Rapid basses are quality seconds. They play perfectly but are slightly marked, with either: a). A black mark on the tuning board, or b). a black or blue stain mark on the white body. All defects are purely cosmetic and are fairly minor.
The Rapid Bass features a body made from paulownia, a wood known for its excellent resonance and tone. It`s also a light wood, making the guitar manageable in terms of weight (2.6kg). The beautifully finished maple neck completes an impressive build on this instrument.
Unlike other reduced-size bass guitars, the Rapid model features full-size tuning keys, which eliminates slop and keeps the guitar in tune for longer periods.
The high quality steel wound strings produce a fantastic bright sound, and are great for any kind of playing, including slap.
Overall, the impressive sound of this bass guitar is more than a match for many full-size bass guitars on the market, making it a perfect travel bass for experienced, gigging musicians and those who simply want to take it with them when travelling.
The Rapid Bass is supplied with a strap and gig bag, making it fantastic value for money and an ideal starter kit for the budding bassist.
Please note that we are the manufacturing company for this bass guitar, and we are based in the UK. We will be pleased to provide a full one-year warranty, plus after sales parts back-up and advice.
