5 String Bass Kit

R 2,800.00 ZAR

This product is the first ever DIY Bass Guitar Kit available at Blackbeard's Den and what a beauty she is. We decided to start with a 5 string but will in time also have a 4 string available. The Alder body has a beautiful grain and is perfect with just a clear sealant. Unveiling this 5-string-thing is a proud moment for us. We hope you'll all be rattling some windows soon! Stock is limited so grab one while you still can.
