Ultra-Light Bass 5-String
Finally a 5-string bass you can take with you
The Ultra-Light Bass 5-String is Traveler Guitar’s lightest, most compact 5-String bass offering ever. Weighing just 3 pounds 15 ounces and measuring only 33 ¾” in length, this 30”-scale acoustic electric bass can go anywhere you want to take it.
The proprietary In-Body Tuning System™ uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body, eliminating the need for a headstock. As a result, you’ll have the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to on an instrument that’s 25 percent shorter and 69 percent lighter than a typical full size 5-string bass guitar.
The Ultra-Light 5-String Bass features a custom piezo pickup so you can plug into your favorite amplifier, while the built-in thumb rest and removable lap-rest frame allow you play in comfort, even in the tightest of spaces. The Ultra-Light 5-String Bass is the perfect solution for traveling players unwilling to compromise on playability, but still looking for a small and light solution. This is an ideal carry-on bass because it stows easily in airline overhead compartments in its included deluxe gig bag.
