Lemur's 5/8 sized Venice™ Bass is a real jewel among our smaller sized basses. Perfectly proportioned for easy play across all four strings, Venice is one of our most popular instruments. It's just right for the musician who wants a smaller bass with a bigger, more focused sound. Like Tosca and Catalina, Venice Bass has a medium dark brown spruce top, maple back and sides, with a matte oil varnish, hand-rubbed to a nice luster. Fingerboards in this batch of three basses are meaty and thick, so we can setup this bass for any type of play you prefer. A 5/8 size bass has so many uses, such as easy portability and travel, chamber orchestra, a stay at home bass. It’s also really important to scale the bass to the player to prevent injury and to maximize playability. So older players, younger players, smaller players can all have a professional quality sound in their chosen instrument, the bass.
As always, Lemur makes an All-Pro setup on Venice to ensure your satisfaction. Call 800-246-2277 to find out how to get this bass delivered to your doorstep.
