Retrovibe R30 “Telenbacker” Bass 30″ short scale – Flame Body – Binding


Build-to-order, 2-3 weeks

Retrovibe R30 Short Scale Telenbacker Bass

SKU: R30FLR Category:



The R30 bass is short scale and based on a combination of Telecaster and Rickenbacker basses.

The bolt-on maple neck has a natural satin finish a Retrovibe headstock.
It is equipped with my HyGane single coil pickups with adjustable pole pieces and has traditional Rickenbacker VVTT controls with a 3-way pickup selector giving a great range of tones. 

It weighs in at around 8.2lbs, which means you can play for longer without tiring.

It sounds like the love-child of a Precision and a 4001/3 with a focused low/mid and plenty of clang available should you need it. Seriously folks, these are SUCH fun to play!

Please note: I am not a factory, I am one man making and assembling unique parts and basses in my small workshop in Somerset. As such, some of my parts and guitars may have minor construction/tooling marks or scratches as well as the odd fingerprint etc. These are all a result of my artisan processes and although I try to keep such things to a minimum, they can sometimes creep in. If you are not happy with that then you may want to look elsewhere for alternatives. Also, I do my best to use recycled packaging whenever possible so sometimes the packaging may look “unconventional”. Please be assured that it will be completely up to the job of protecting your purchase and that it goes some way to reducing the cost and carbon footprint of my products. Thank you!
