Specially created for those users who appreciate the slim body and light weight of the Verythin but want to continue to play on a long scale neck this bass gives you the best of both worlds.

The Verythin is of course famous for its ultra slim body, which at just 1.25" is the thinnest around. But the thin body is deceptive, these basses deliver a full resonating bass that easily cuts through the band.

The all maple body is fitted with two Höfner full size humbucking pickups that have real punch, producing good highs and terrific lows. Full control is provided with two volume and two tone controls.

Finished in a subtle sunburst dark cherry transparent finish the Verything Long Scale bass is a class leader.
