Vintage VCB430 Acoustic Bass, Mahogany

With legendary Icon and ReIssued Series bass guitar models, Vintage has earned its reputation as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of workhorse bass guitars. But reputation alone is not enough to make an instrument great - such credibility lies within first class construction, playability and tone.

With an expertly applied open-pore finish, the Vintage VCB430 Electro-Acoustic Bass exceeds all expectations...and more. Visually, this is one handsome 4 string electro-acoustic bass guitar featuring a solid mahogany soundboard, single cutaway mahogany body with cream bindings and multi-layer black/white/black purfling and matching rosette design.

Along with the sculpted cutaway, natural body curves and sleek, bound Eastern mahogany neck with a smooth 20 fret fingerboard, this exceptionally well built instrument is a delight to play, with a precision cut nut and gold plated smooth geared machine heads ensuring accurate tuning stability. The Vintage VCB430 may be an acoustic bass first and foremost, and, indeed, played acoustically, it’s all about the warmth of the mahogany construction, yielding massive lows, balanced mids and sweet highs with exceptional clarity and natural projection. The thin lacquer open-pore finish preserves the natural tonewood sonic characteristics while allowing the soundboard to vibrate freely for a livelier, brighter string response. By adding a high quality on-board preamp like the Fishman Presys system with Volume, Middle, Bass and Phase controls, expands the sonic possibilities way beyond the realms of acoustic bass guitars.

The Vintage VCB430 Electro-Acoustic Bass is ideal for many playing styles including pop, rock, bluegrass, blues, country, folk and jazz, performed acoustically at home or the beach BBQ supporting other instruments, or as an electro acoustic bass in the studio or live stage environment. Play on.
