      Washburn AB40SH Stu Hamm Acoustic-Electric Bass (107896110)

The Washburn bass that bears the name of a bona fide bass legend.

Washburn worked side-by-side with a true bass guitar legend to produce the AB40SH Stu Hamm Signature Acoustic Bass. The bass has a fully intonatable bridge, allowing for even intonation throughout the entire fingerboard. It's perfect for those who want tone, playability, and acoustic amplification without the intrusion of feedback.

The acoustic bass features an arched spruce top, arched maple back, maple sides, and a mahogany neck for a full, balanced tone that swells from the oval soundhole and through the custom piezo electronics. The rosewood fretboard, multi-laminate binding, intonatable monorail bridge, and Grover tuners continue the strength in construction not regularly seen in an acoustic-electric bass crossover.

Stuart Hamm has performed and recorded with Steve Vai, Frank Gambale, Joe Satriani and many other well-respected guitarists. It was playing live on tour with Satriani that brought Hamm's bass playing skills to national attention.

Hamm's slapping, popping and two-handed tapping techniques are demonstrated on his solo recordings and instructional videos. A popular part of his live performance often includes a two-handed tapping arrangement of Vince Guaraldi's "Linus and Lucy." Includes case.

  • Perfect if its what your looking for

    As reviewed by Amitabh Goswami on 7/24/2012

    This is my first review hopefully it's good. Anyway just got the bass today so far its just what I wanted. I was searching for a bass to use for melodic tapping and an acoustic so it worked perfectly. The bass is very high quality its apart just in the picture. Admittedly it doesn't feel perfect although it may just take some time. The action was a little buzzy but that nothing some small adjustments can't fix.The look is incredible this is the type of bass you want to show off.Ultimately if it's what your looking for you won't be disappointed.
