This trade-in 2011 Shen SB 180 (2011-10-86) deluxe solid top hybrid model has developed a large voice from its use as a loaner and rental bass for a local luthier that recently gave up his shop and moved to France. Bold grain solid spruce top, Fancy curly maple laminate back and sides, Flame figured maple neck, Mid-grade brass tuning machines, Ebony nut, fingerboard, and tailpiece saddle, ebonized tailpiece, 10 mm steel rod endpin, Replacement maple bridge with adjusters, Dark orange-red oil varnish finish, Currently strung with Spirocore mittel strings. DIMENSIONS are: Top length 43″, Upper bout width 19 3/4″, Middle bout width 15″, Lower bout width 26 3/8″, Depth at tail 8 3/4″, Depth at upper bout corner 8 1/8″, Depth at neck 6 5/8″, String length 41 1/4″. This bass has an especially nice strong grained top, which lends a solidity to the voice that has developed and matured through consistent play. The cosmetic line on the back looks to have been done in the production process for steam bending the back shape. A great sounding used example of this deluxe hybrid 3/4 model. With cover.
