The Gold Tone PBB Paul Beard Signature Acoustic-Electric Resonator Bass delivers an authentic upright bass sound in a more compact package.

The Gold Tone PBB Paul Beard Signature Acoustic-Electric Resonator Bass offers a great alternative instrument for bass players. More than any other guitar-style bass, the dynamics and sustain of the PBB has a remarkably similar tone to an upright bass (this is an awesome option for bluegrass bass players and any other music types who want to travel lightly but not compromise that authentic upright bass sound).

Designed by legendary maker Paul Beard, the top, back & sides of the PBB Resonator Bass are crafted from mahogany to produce that warm acoustic bass sound. Combined with Paul's cone & spider, PBB delivers that unmistakable resonator tone. An antique reddish-brown finish and celluloid binding on the body & neck give this resonator bass a vintage vibe. The maple neck features a 32" scale length and is capped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Low string action offers fast playability from the first fret to the last. For exceptional amplified tone, the PBB Paul Beard Resonator Bass comes outfitted with a single humbucking pickup and volume & tone controls. Other features include a bone nut, a maple bridge with ebony insert, a chrome-plated 4-string Dobro-style tailpiece and a set of chrome-plated bass-style die cast sealed tuning machines. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
