Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4, 2008

Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4, 2008

The Warwick Star Bass II Bubinga 4 is a top quality, thinline bass with passive electronics, here in fretted form but also available as fretless. Introduced in 2008, this model is derived from the Framus Star Bass. The thinline construction concept is very familiar on guitars, but less so on basses. Though there can be a risk of feedback at higher volumes, the somewhat ’rounder’ attack and decay profiles evokes the tone of an acoustic bass.

Music Man Sabre Bass Sunburst, 1978

Music Man Sabre Bass Sunburst, 1978

Here’s a rarity and bit of history – a Music Man Sabre Bass, built during 1978 in Fullerton, California by CLF Research for Music Man. CLF stood for Clarence Leo Fender. Music Man was founded in 1974 and in 1975, Leo Fender’s non-compete agreement lapsed and he became president of Music Man. Until 1979, Music Man guitars and basses were built by Leo’s other company, CLF Research. After 1979 and until Music Man folded in 1984, Grover Jackson built the bodies and necks and assembled the instruments.

❌SOLD❌ Gold Tone IT-250 Irish Tenor Banjo, 2016

❌SOLD❌  Gold Tone IT-250 Irish Tenor Banjo, 2016

The Irish Tenor banjo is specially adapted to Irish and other Celtic music styles, pitched low to co-exist with the Bodhran, pipes and fiddles. The Gold Tone IT-250 Irish Tenor model offers a quality instrument at a reasonable price. The seventeen-fret IT-250’s short scale neck uses heavier strings and is tuned to GDAE, an octave below the mandolin. This setup is in wide use by many traditional Irish musicians because it provides the plunky tone that works so well with the bodhran, pipes and fiddles found in Celtic music ensembles.

❌ SOLD ❌ Ludwig Ambassador Tenor Banjo Walnut, 1926

The Ludwig Ambassador tenor banjo is an example of a business recognizing opportunity. The Ludwig Drum Company started in 1909 and by the early 1920’s realized that banjos are closely related to drums, and offered a range of models. However, by the early 1930’s as banjos started to wane, Ludwig moved back to its core business – and is still a respected name in drum manufacturing.
