An upright bass with seriously big tone.

With its sweet sound, great look, and light, portable design, the Palatino Electric Upright Bass is the answer to every bass player's prayer. The Palatino VE500 has a chambered body of select spruce and a vintage sunburst finish. The slim, maple neck and curved ebony fingerboard emulate an acoustic upright bass. The adjustable maple bridge rests on the Piezo transducer pickup, giving the VE-500 its large, booming tone.

The four geared tuners with metal buttons offer easy, accurate tuning. The black finished metal tailpiece is sturdy and practical. The lightweight endpin offers an infinite range of adjustment with a positive locking mechanism.

The VE-500 is absolutely versatile with its active tone and volume controls and a headphone jack with preamp. A rugged combination leather/plastic carrying bag with backpack straps is also included.

The VE-500 is fully shop-adjusted in the U.S. and ready to play right out of the box. The low, effortless action will appeal especially to fretted electric bass players making the transition to an upright instrument. The big tone, which is just like an amplified acoustic bass, will please professionals looking for a bass they can travel with.
