We love this new Karr build and are excited it’s going to a great school program for young bassists! This bass really captures the spirit of our collaboration with Gary Karr – a great, expressive string instrument at a sensible price. We know it will shine in the hands of the double bass section at Brigham Young University!
This is a perfectly scaled 5/8ths size version of our Karr model. It’s a fully-carved round-back build of Northeastern domestic Maple back and sides with German Spruce top, a 40” scale length and a long solo fingerboard. The adjustable neck will allow for quick transition between players and the bowed tonal clarity of a solid-leg bridge.
This is a great bass for a young player or anybody who is ready to scale down! If you are looking for an instrument for your talented student in the fall, this is the time to get in the queue. We are ready to build hybrid and flatback versions on this new 5/8ths form – give the shop a call to imagine yours: (860) 535-9399
