This new Shen SB 200 Rogeri willow flatback (2013-9-126) is another fine example of the model that the Shen folks call the “Steve Swan Model”. Though it has the same neck shape and string length of the 3/4 size SB 200 willow flatback, the slightly longer, wider, and deeper dimensions give this model a significantly larger presence and volume in all registers. Medium width grain spruce top, Willow back and sides, X-braced back, Maple neck, Mid-grade brass single unit tuning machines, Ebony nut, fingerboard, and tailpiece saddle, Replacement Hill style ebony tailpiece, 10 mm steel rod endpin, German maple bridge with added adjusters, Red-orange oil varnish finish, Strung for arco work with Thomastik Bel Canto strings. DIMENSIONS are: Top length 43 5/8″, Upper bout width 20 3/4″, Middle bout width 14 1/2″, Lower bout width 26 3/8″, Depth at tail 9 1/8″, Depth at upper bout corner 8 1/2″, Depth at neck 7 3/8″, String length 41 1/2″. This bass has a large presence in all registers and a musically colorful voice, especially in the middle and thumb position areas. A fine student orchestral instrument. With cover.
