The Taylor AB-1 Acoustic/Electric Bass Guitar -
This acoustic-electric bass guitar
is a four-string acoustic-electric bass guitar built on a 34'' scale. It
has a sitka spruce top, imbiua (Brazilian walnut) back, sides, peghead & bridge, & a 24 fret ebony fretboard with Steve Klein ivoroid
signature inlays. Chrome-plated Grover tuners complimented by the
beautiful satin finish combine with all of these factors to make this
bass guitar a most beautiful instrument.
The design of this bass guitar has much to do with Taylor's hype of
recreating the sound of an upright acoustic upright bass guitar. The
body of the guitar is huge -it's a bi-directional tapered body that
ranges in depth from 3 1/2'' to 6 1/2'', & the soundhole rosette is a
turned imbiua ring which is located in a rather odd place - on the
treble side of the body instead of directly in the center of the guitar. The electronics also contribute to the excellence of this instrument.
It uses a Fishman ABGP-2 pickup preamp - for those of you who don't
know, Fishman is the premier manufacturer of acoustic pickups &
transducers, so be assured that this bass guitar is equipped with the
best electronics available. Because of woods, the electronics, & the big-bodied design, the Taylor AB-1 is about as close as it can get to recreating the sound of an upright acoustic bass guitar. This bass guitar delivers that soft, bassy thud that
is so sought after by bass guitarists who play jazz or any other
mellow, laid-back styl
