Gold Tone Micro Bass Natural 2017
GT Micro Bass, natural finish, made in China 2017. Awww, isn't it cute? This is a lovely little take on the ukulele bass idea; so it's a short scale acoustic bass with a smaller size dreadnought shape body and some fun, rubbery polymer strings. Plugged in, it's meant to emulate the thick, juicy thud of a double bass, and it does that pretty well for a little guy. Unplugged, it's just a heap of fun to noodle around and write riffs on. These are made in USA, apparently the owner checks each one before it leaves the factory. There's a lot to like here; these are tricky to find new so this basically minty fresh example is a cool little score.
