Gold Tone 4 String Fretless Acoustic Electric Bass Guitar with 23" Scale, Gold Tone Model #M-BassFL
(note - photos on this listing show the fretted version. The listing is for the Fretless version)
The original, and still a best-seller. You'll find that this mighty mite has real usefulness in acoustic playing situations, but plug it in and the REAL fun begins. The M-Bass 23" Fretless will have your acoustic amp or bass amp rumbling with big, fundamental bass tone. The sound of the M-Bass through an amp is uncannily like that of an upright string bass. You get big bass magic from an instrument the size of a "baby" guitar, shaped by the built-in piezo pickup's EQ module (with tuner!). The M-Bass's mahogany mini-dreadnaught cutaway body has an arched back and comfort-beveled top for playing comfort. Gold Tone's specially developed Aquila high-tension polymer strings are easy on the fingers and really bring out that bottom end. Padded gig bag included.
All Gold Tone instruments are designed and their prototypes built by Wayne Rogers and his team of skilled luthiers at the Gold Tone facility in Titusville, Florida. Gold Tone has long-term relationships with their manufacturing partners.These factories specialize in making the types of instruments Gold Tone offers, BUT EVERY GOLD TONE PRODUCT IS AN ORIGINAL DESIGN.
The final blueprints for each product are sent to one of Gold Tone's partner factories in China and Korea. The majority of instruments produced by Gold Tone are manufactured in a Korean owned-and-managed factory in China that Gold Tone has worked with since 1993, when Gold Tone was founded. Gold Tone uses maple from the US and Canada, rosewood and ebony from Africa and Indonesia and blackwood from Australia. Most of Gold Tone's metal parts come from Korea, as well as from China, the US and Germany.
