Retrovibe T30 Short Scale Snakehead Telecaster Bass in Candy Red or Butterscotch

SKU: T30SNAKE Category:


This T30 bass is short scale and based on a Snakehead Telecaster.
The body I used for this model was new

The bolt-on maple neck has a rosewood fretboard with block inlays and has been shimmed slightly to fit the telecaster neck pocket.
It is equipped with my Ultralite tuners (it has little or no neck dive) and 18mm bridge and fitted with a pair of Retrovibe HiGain pickups with a 3-way pickup selector giving a great range of tones. 

It weighs in at around 7lbs, which means you can play for longer without tiring. Little or no neck dive with a textured strap but shiny nylon straps are not recommended. 

It currently has a very low action which can easily be raised according to your taste. Strung with a brand new set of stainless Rotosound RB45 strings. (45, 65, 85, 105)

It sounds like the love-child of a Precision and a Ric with the HiGain pickups fitted. They give a surprisingly wide tonal range, making it a very useable bass.

Drop me a line if you’d like something similar in a different colour.
