Shen 5/8 Hybrid

  • Size: 5/8
  • String Length: 39.75"
  • Body Length: 42 3/8”
  • Back Material: Maple plywood flatback
  • Ribs: Fully carved willow
  • Purfling: Inlaid

This is an advanced hybrid with carved spruce top, solid willow ribs and a flat all maple plywood back.  The flat back provides great stability and a tight low punch, while the solid ribs and top provide the tonal character of a fully carved bass.  It has a full and complex tone, and is very easy to get around on.  The shorter string length and slightly smaller neck radius are very easy on the hands.
