Shen 80
$1400

This is a good sounding instrument with a lot of value for the price. I don't often carry this model, but when I do it is because the particular instrument is special find both in sound and looks.  Excellent for students or for professionals looking for a bass they can feel comfortable taking out and about, or any other situation where an instrument might get a lot of use.

Very similar to a Shen model 88, with a lacquer varnish.  Laminated 3/4 size bass.

 

We do all our set up work here in our shop, spending  about 4.5 hours to adjust the fingerboard, make our own bridge from a French made bridge blank,  install high quality height adjusters, regulate the string heights at the nut and bridge, make a well fit soundpost, properly install the end pin and more.The string length is 41 -1/2"" with a comfortable and well proportioned "d" neck. 

The bass pictured has  American made Helicore hybrid strings, most other strings can be substituted.
