Czech Ease Acoustic Road Bass from David Gage with Hardshell Case. Used original Czech-Ease Standard S1 model for sale with original flight case. Hard to argue with this little alien when Dave Holland and Esperanza Spalding gig on them!

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 custom flight case. The original Czech-Ease consistently surprises first timers with its real volume and clear attack.
