Violin Bass

If ever there was a German bass design that had the ability to forge its way into the line-up of American bass classics, then would have to be the violin bass. The sound of this instrument is associated with countless hits by the Beatles, not to mention with the Liverpool legend´s various solo projects. With its own Violin Bass, Duesenberg introduces a different interpretation of the classic instrument, proving once again that classic design and modern features can go hand in hand, and quite nicely at that. Thanks to a neck that is wider than that of its forerunner (string spacing is 18 mm at the bridge), even experienced bass players can play this excellent sounding bass because of the string spacing (18 mm) in their  accustomed manner, while at the same time enjoying the four-stringed instrument’s lighter weight and smaller scale length (77.5 cm).

The Violin Bass comes equipped with impressive features and is constructed according to traditional techniques – no sustain block, with an arched spruce top as well as flamed maple back and sides. Cream-colored binding runs around the body, neck and headstock, while the instrument’s nickel-plated brass saddles are fully adjustable. Two Duesenberg custom bass humbuckers, operated by two volume controls and one master tone control, are positioned in precisely the right locations. 

The Duesenberg Violin Bass ships with Duesenberg BSRS1 strings (nickel roundwound steel, medium scale: 050 - 070 - 085 - 110), which are also available at all Duesenberg retailers and through the online shop.
