Overview

A cutaway body makes it easier to play up the fingerboard.

The Palatino Billy Bass 3/4-size upright bass has a cutaway body design for unrestricted access to the upper mid section of the fingerboard. It is one the few cutaway upright basses available on the market, and the Billy Bass offers an unparalleled combination of quality, style, and value.

The Billy Bass produces resonant bowed tones thanks to the spruce top, but maintains classic warmth and crisp tonality from the maple back, sides, and neck. The ebony fingerboard provides excellent durability against string wear. Tyrolean-style bass tuners keep the strings in tune for serious slapping, popping, and upper-neck playing. The double bass's adjustable maple bridge makes it easy change the tone from crisp rockabilly pops to the soft, warm jazz movements.

Its 3/4-size is easy to handle and by far the most common upright bass size used by adult musicians.
