New Xuechang Sun Special 420

This bass is an especially fine example of the Xuechang Sun 420 Gofriller model specially fitted with a wider grain and more flexible spruce top. I usually have Allan Droyan regraduate (revoice) the top to give the kind of response that this instrument already has. Mildly flame figured maple neck, sides, and back. Gold halfplate tuners, a dense, black ebony fingerboard, and ¬†10 mm steel rod endpin. ¬†Aubert Luxe bridge with adjusters added as part of a comprehensive setup. Dark red varnish finish. Dimensions are: Top length 43 1/2″, Upper bout width 20 1/2″, Middle bout width 14″, Lower bout width 26 3/4″, Depth at neck 8″, Depth at upper bout bend 8 3/8″, Depth at tail 9 1/4″, String length 41 3/8″. With an easy playing setup, this bass has a complex and harmonically rich voice with either fingers or bow. Currently strung with Thomastik Superflexible strings. With cover.

Price: $4500
