Palatino Electric Upright Bass, Sunburst Finish

The Sunburst Palatino VE-550 Electric Upright Bass is a budget electric upright bass.  It looks great, has a nice tone – and is priced to buy!!  The body is spruce and the bass has an ebony fingerboard on a maple neck.  The bridge is also maple with piezo pickups.  The bass includes a metal tailpiece for additional strength.  The endpin is fully adjustable.

The Sunburst Palatino bass has active electronics and includes tone and volume controls.  It comes with a strong carrying case.

The great thing about an electric upright bass is that it can mirror the sound of an acoustic double bass, yet it is easy to transport and you do not face feedback problems when playing at volume.  If you are an electric bass player this makes a good introduction to the upright world!!

About the bass:

Scale length: 40-3/4″ Thats the nut to bridge measurement.

It doesn’t break down for travel – though as with other basses the endpin does retract.

As far as the wood is concerned it is a spruce top, maple on the sides and back.

You will need a more substantial case to travel with the bass.
