Breaking News: The new AB6OCE Electric Acoustic Bass is now shipping, and is far exceeding expectations.
“Over the past few years we’ve gone back to the drawing board to remake and improve every single Alvarez model, and the acoustic electric bass is no exception,” says SLM Senior VP Chris Meikle. “We found that too often other E/A basses don’t sound as good unplugged, and we remedied that with this model. The hand sanded, scalloped bracing allows for a full, rich, big sound. Then you plug it in and the SYS650 Dual pickup, blend system E.Q. provides all the volume you need while maintaining that beautiful acoustic tone.”
The AB60CE also features hand selected “A” grade, solid Sitka spruce top; mahogany back and sides; Alvarez bi-level rosewood bridge; and rosewood fingerboard. The bass is also fitted with real bone nut and saddle, Paua abalone and mother of pearl inlays, and premium die cast chrome tunes. Plus the electronics also feature a popular built-in tuner.
“Too often these basses are an after-thought to an acoustic guitar line, but we wanted to create a bass that would stand on its own,” continues Meikle. “It took extra effort and time to get what we wanted but we think the bass playing community will love it.”
