This new Shen SB 200 Willow Rogeri carved back (2018-10-57) is an extraordinarily good sounding example of this model, combining the stiffer, more complex sounding spruce top used on this bass with the fine low-end producing willow carved back body on the large 3/4 shape. Spruce top with very bold grain lines in the center section under the bridge feet and generous hazelfichte (bear claw figure), Willow back and sides, Maple neck, Ebony nut, fingerboard, and tailpiece saddle, Replacement Ebony German style tailpiece, Replacement ULSA 10 mm steel rod endpin, Replacement German Maple bridge with added adjusters, Arco setup, Flexocore Deluxe strings, Red-brown oil varnish finish. DIMENSIONS are: Top length 43 5/8″, Upper bout width 20 1/2″, Middle bout width 14 3/4″, Lower bout width 26 1/4″, Depth at tail 9 1/4″, Depth at upper bout bend 8 1/2″, Depth at neck 7 3/8″, String length 41 7/8″. This bass has an especially strong, rich voice in the arco settings of a community orchestra or a serious course of study for a motivated student. With cover.
