OVERVIEW

Great sound and playability.

The MicroBassFL, or M-BassFL, is a 23" fretless short-scaled acoustic/electric bass guitar that utilizes a dedicated synthetic string and a piezo transducer pickup. The extended scale length greatly improves intonation over similar models and allows for an acoustic volume loud enough to enjoy without plugging into an amplifier. The sloped ergo-glide top makes this instrument extremely comfortable to hold.

The MicroBass features a built-in transducer pickup with a master volume control as well as independent bass and treble tone controls. There is also a built-in electronic tuner with mute function that will aid in quick and accurate pitch adjustments. When the tuner is engaged, the instrument output is muted. When a 1/4" instrument cable is inserted into the output jack, the tuner is automatically engaged and the instrument is muted. By pressing the tuner button, the tuner is disengaged and the bass output will be audible.

MicroBass models feature an active pickup, which means that a battery is required for the pickup to function. The battery and can be accessed in the built-in preamp on the upper bout of the instrument. The MicroBass uses a 9v battery, which can be accessed under the plastic cover on the backside of the instrument opposite the volume and tone controls. A battery is included with all new MicroBasses.

The MicroBass includes a 5-year warranty to the original owner covering manufacturing defects.
Gig bag included.

Comments about Gold Tone 23" Scale Fretless Acoustic-Electric MicroBass:

The fretless bass I received had 3 frets that were raised above the fretboard I returned it and got a full refund.
I decided to buy one locally because I could try it in person. Musicians Friend handled the situation well Thanks

      Comments about Gold Tone 23" Scale Fretless Acoustic-Electric MicroBass:

      Nice little bass never played a fretless before, took a few days getting used to it.Stays in tune pretty good, but you have to pull on the string and tune at the same time (in the manual) Electrics work well could do with having a slightly hotter output, battery life good
      One thing to mention I can't play it without rubbing a bit of talc on my hands (same with all the U bass types I've played),
      Excellent five year warranty, overall not too shabby Last but not least get the the hard case there is a factory case (comes with soft bag nice quality)
