The first fully acoustic portable upright bass is the only fully acoustic portable bass with an easily removable neck.
The Eminence Removable Neck model is the first choice for traveling professionals. With its innovative design, it takes only 5 minutes to break down and 10 minutes to set up.
The fully acoustic Eminence Portable Upright Bass features a laminated, arched top of spruce, braced with a solid spruce bassbar and soundpost, and a laminated, arched back made of highly figured curly maple. The standard 41-3/8" scale is strung with D’Addario Helicore strings, and the maple neck sports an ebony fingerboard and nut. The fully height-adjustable maple bridge with modified Realist pickup allows personalized action adjustments.
Included with the Eminence Removable Neck model are two soft cases. The deluxe full-size gig bag houses the Eminence fully assembled, while the additional neck case stores neck, strings and waist extension when unassembled.
Both fit snuggly inside the hard flight case, with ample room for a stand. Once at your destination, assemble the Eminence at your hotel, transport to your gig with the gig bag, and store flight case and neck case for your return trip.
Total weight for the Eminence Bass with gig bag, neck case and hard flight case is approximately 40 pounds. Add a stand and it’s still under the 50 pound limit for checked baggage. Plus, most airlines allow a golf club flight case as part of their baggage allowance (call your airline to confirm). Steady-foot™ Anti-rotational Endpin Foot, waist extension and professional set-up are all standard. Amplifier not included.
