The R30 bass is short scale (30″) and based on a combination of Telecaster and RiKenbacker basses.
The bolt-on maple neck has a rosewood fretboard and a natural satin finish while the body is gloss black with white binding front and back.
It is equipped with a Retrovibe HyGane single coil pickup with adjustable pole pieces in the bridge position and a Retrovibe Toaster at the neck, with traditional Rickenbacker VVTT controls, a push/pull pot for vintage tone on the bridge pickup and a 3-way pickup selector giving a great range of tones.
I’ve fitted with a clear acrylic ThumbChum rest on the pickguard and will include a stainless cover for the bridge pickup if you would like one. These items are standard but can be omitted if preferred.
It weighs in at around 7.8lbs (3.5kg).
