RB-1005SM

NATURAL SATIN

$1,349.00

The "RB" in this bass series stands for "Rocco's Bass", referring to none other than the man who co-designed this instrument and inspired thousands of players with his innovations in fingerstyle funk: Rocco Prestia of the immortal Bay Area funk/R&B masters Tower of Power. The LTD RB-1005SM has been updated for 2017, and is about as serious of a professional-quality bass as you can imagine. It starts with some traditional design cues, like its bolt-on construction at 34" scale. But from there, the RB-1005SM goes straight uptown with a dense swamp ash body, a figured spalted maple top in Natural Satin finish, a C-shaped five-piece maple and walnut neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets. If you want great-sounding, flexible tone, the RB-1005SM gives it to you in droves with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound P5 and J5 pickups, with simple volume, balance, and tone controls. The RB-1005SM also includes high-quality Grover tuners, and a Gotoh bridge with string-thru-body design for fantastic sustain. Also available in a 4-string version with the RB-1004SM.
