(U.S. Only)

The LTD Thinline TL-5SM is a five-string bass that gives you the best of both worlds, sounding great for both acoustic and electric performances. It offers a chambered mahogany body with a Natural Gloss finished spalted maple top that looks great. Built with set-neck construction at 34" scale, the TL-5SM has a three-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, Grover tuners, and a Fishman SONICORE pickup and TL-3 preamp with onboard tuner. Excellent for any genre of music where great bass playing is noticed and appreciated, the TL-5SM is surprisingly affordable, and a terrific choice for bass players looking to break out of the same old routine.
