Lowest Priced EUB ELectric Upright Bass that can get the job done.

With its sweet sound, great look, and light, portable design, the Palatino Electric Upright Bass is the answer to every bass player's prayer. The VE-500 has a chambered body of select spruce and a vintage sunburst finish. The slim, maple neck and curved ebony fingerboard emulate an acoustic upright bass. The adjustable maple bridge rests on the Piezo transducer pickup, giving the VE-500 its large, booming tone.

The four geared tuners with metal buttons offer easy, accurate tuning. The black finished metal tailpiece is sturdy and practical. The lightweight endpin offers an infinite range of adjustment with a positive locking mechanism.
