Introducing the Kingman Bass SCE

Fender presents what is very likely its most distinctive acoustic bass guitar model ever, the Kingman Bass SCE. Fender has issued a handful of acclaimed acoustic basses in recent years, all with the traditional two-on-each-side tuner scheme on the headstock. What immediately distinguishes the Kingman Bass SCE, however, is its Fender Jazz Bass neck and headstock.

Rees introduces lightweight F-Light Bass

The new Rees F-Light bass guitar is being made in Cambridge, England. It has been designed as a full-size performing musician's instrument that is very light, of relatively small overall size, and comfortable to play when standing or sitting. The exceptionally long upper horn for the strap, and the zero overhang of the lower bout beyond the bridge, brings the whole neck closer to the player's body. This makes the bass feel less long, and easier to play. It is much appreciated by women, and men with shorter arms, but is also more comfortable for anybody. The F-Light weighs only 6 lbs, compared to a traditional bass guitar of 10 lbs.

Presenting the limited run Gibson Grabber II Bass

In 1973 the Gibson bass came out of the shadows in the form of the Grabber G1, a rock-minded four-string that grabbed the attention of bassists everywhere. Its sleek design was matched by a thick and heavy, yet well-defined tone, and thousands of players found its blend of simplicity and versatility very hard to ignore. The model has been out of the Gibson catalog since 1982, but it’s back again, thanks to the new Grabber II, now available as part of Gibson USA’s new Limited Run Series guitars. The Grabber II — like all Limited Run Series models — will be produced in a strictly limited run of only 350 guitars.
