From David Gage:


The Czech-Ease™ is a full-sounding bass with an abbreviated body that makes it exponentially more portable than its full-bodied cousins without losing the true-bass sound.

The original Czech-Ease bass has been used by bassists worldwide since 2004, including Dave Holland, Esperanza Spalding, and Chris Wood. With a plywood body and an abbreviated lower bout, it’s highly durable and easily transported by car, bus, train, or plane with a custom flight case. The original Czech-Ease consistently surprises first-timers with its real volume and clear attack.
