(U.S. Only)

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.

Hey thanks Carl!  Somehow I just found a dealer that can order one for me in my area too.

Hope you enjoy it!

This is an amazing instrument. I love the 2014 model. It's lightweight and has a huge P pickup sound which really puts it a cut above other basses at its price point. Hoping to get my hands on the updated version. Don't see them in stores very often.

Hey Del, they're currently on hand, would just have to add it to your cart
