Meet the Stetson.
The Stetson is an homage to that first solid body electric bass produced back in 1951. Compared to the stand-up double bass that preceded this compact form, the development of a fretted fingerboard finally allowed notes to be played with "precision". Used by every bassist from the likes of Motown’s James Jamerson, all the way to modern players like Pino Palladino, this bass has become a work horse and has earned its place in history among the true classics. This intrument truly embodies the spirit of a true vintage bass.
Our standard model features a traditional lightweight ash body, hand wound split single coil pickup, and your choice of a rosewood or maple fretboard.Build your Stetson
