I couldn't be happier with the instruments I've purchased from you. Thanks from me and all us southpaws for your great selection! Thanks So Much, George Thomas

    Question: What is "Korina" wood ? Answer: Korina is an excellent "Tone Wood" and has been used by some of the top manufacturers (Gibson, PRS, Brice etc) to build superior instruments. It is considered to be a "Super Mahogany" with a sweet mid range and enhanced tonal response.

    Question: How does this 3/4 sized guitar compare to a full sized guitar?
    Answer: This scaled down guitar is about 3" shorter than a full sized bass guitar. It is excellent for a person who is between 4'2" and 4'10", or for a larger person who just wants a smaller instrument (for perhaps when one travels). People with back issues also enjoy this light weight bass guitar.

    Question: How much does the bass guitar weigh?
    Answer: Only 8 pounds!
