Breedlove

Extra deep body to give you more projection and resonance on the low end.

The Passport B350/Sme-4 has an extra deep body in the concert shape, and is a solid 4-string bass that takes advantage of Breedlove's bold bass bracing. This special bass guitar features amazing tone, sustain, and balance in the low register. A solid Sitka Spruce top and beautiful mahogany back and sides generate a warm tone with good projection and string-by-string clarity. Its compact 32” scale makes this bass comfortable and easy to play. The Passport Active VTC pickup lets you be heard in any venue and a built-in chromatic tuner with backlit screen makes it easy to stay in tune. A 9-volt battery is easily accessed near the endpin area.

Includes gig bag.

      Comments about Breedlove Passport B350/SMe4 Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

      Nice bass at a good price! QC by Breedlove delivered a well set-up instrument, clean and in perfect working order. I am not a bass player, but do jam with friends who do play bass, so it is the "house bass" when the need arises! A really decent sounding/playing instrument.

          Comments about Breedlove Passport B350/SMe4 Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

          I can't say enough good things about this Bass. Great strings, hardware, workmanship,sSound, even the embroidered padded gig bag is beautiful. The correct strings are D'Addario EXPPBB170 long scale, NOT the D'Addario short scale. I know from bad experience. Beautiful, rich sound. Intonation not close, PERFECT. Nice backlit tuner built in. 2 band eq w/volume good enough for me. Made in Korea, shipped to Bend OR. where they are quality controlled & setup, for this price, unreal!! I love the Satin/Semi-Gloss finish. No smudges & fingerprints. The maintenance book, you can download from Breedlove website, says never put polish on a Satin finish. Just a soft moist cloth. This A/E Bass is a treasure. I LOVE IT!!

            Comments about Breedlove Passport B350/SMe4 Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

            Very good quality instrument and well set-up. It has a shorter scale and a smaller body. It plays great and sounds really good. A very nice surprise is that it comes with a decent Gig Bag, that makes a big difference to me. The built in Tuner is a nice addition as well. This is the first Breedlove thatnI have purchased and I am impressed.

              Comments about Breedlove Passport B350/SMe4 Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

              I've owned a Fender acoustic electric bass and have been checking out other brands in this price range and higher at the local stores. When I saw that Breedlove had created an ultra affordable version of their Passport bass, I decided to order one without trying one first. I'm glad I did. The build quality is quite good. Playability was good right out of the box. The sound is excellent, thanks in part to the fact that it came with nice bronze strings (You have to wonder why every brand doesn't do that). The on board tuner and preamp work exactly as they should and the included gig bag is nice.Overall, I'm very pleased.
