Vintage VCB430N Electro Acoustic Bass - Natural

An easy to play acoustic bass with onboard Fishman® pre-amp, the Vintage VCB430 is ideal for a variety of genres.

Vintage VCB430N Electro Acoustic Bass - Natural


With legendary Icon and ReIssued Series bass guitar models, Vintage has earned its reputation as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of workhorse bass guitars. But reputation alone is not enough to make an instrument great, such credibility lies within first class construction, playability and tone.

With a stunning satin Natural Ash finish, the Vintage VCB430 Electro-Acoustic Bass exceeds all expectations...and more.

Visually, this is one handsome 4 string electro-acoustic bass featuring a solid spruce soundboard with a striking flame maple veneer, single cutaway mahogany body with cream bindings and multi-layer black/white/black purfling and matching rosette design.

Along with the sculpted cutaway, natural body curves and sleek, bound Eastern mahogany neck with a smooth 20 fret fingerboard, this exceptionally well built instrument is a delight to play, with a precision cut nut and gold plated smooth geared machine heads ensuring accurate tuning stability.

The VCB430 may be an acoustic bass first and foremost, and, indeed, played acoustically, the solid spruce/mahogany construction yields massive lows, balanced mids and sweet highs with exceptional clarity and natural projection.

By adding a high quality on-board preamp like the Fishman Presys system with Volume, Middle, Bass and Phase controls, expands the sonic possibilities way beyond the realms of acoustic bass guitars. The Vintage VCB430 Electro-Acoustic Bass is ideal for many playing styles including pop, rock, bluegrass, blues, country, folk and jazz, performed acoustically at home or the beach BBQ supporting other  instruments, or as an electro acoustic bass in the studio or live stage environment. Play on.
