Grez Guitars Releases the Mendocino Long Scale Bass

Grez Guitars Releases the Mendocino Long Scale Bass

Utilizing salvaged Old Growth Redwood and semi-hollow construction, the bass captures the aesthetic and voice of the classic instruments it’s based on while delivering modern high-performance hardware and playability.

“Like all the instruments in the Mendocino line, this bass is inspired by the funky vintage pieces from the 60s that had great looks and tones. Take that and improve the materials, build quality, and workmanship and you end up with a winning combination!” says Luthier Barry Grzebik. “Building with old growth reclaimed Redwood originally harvested 100 years ago helps create a voice and story that’s unique.”

The 34” scale instrument comes in at just 5.9 lbs making it incredibly comfortable for long gigs and its semi-hollow construction gives it a unique and complex voice. The Babicz saddles ensure solid intonation and energy transfer to the body and the Novak Lipstick pickups help the voice be as vintage as the looks. Customization is welcome with delivery times as little as 8 weeks.
