Rock N' Roll Relics Announces the Thunders Bass

The company's first set-neck Bass is available in various classic colors and aged and non-aged levels.

San Francisco, CA (March 14, 2016) -- Rock N Roll Relics announced the debut of the Thunders Bass today, the company's first set neck Bass model available in various classic colors and aged and non-aged levels.

The Thunders bass is a 30.5” short scale with a 12” radius. The back carve profile is .875 at the 1st fret and .1 at the 12th. Nut width is 1.72”. The bass features a thin nitrocellulose finish which is available in any level of aging to non aged. Finish work can include the neck in a different color with a stinger to match the body. Rounding out the model is D.Allen Thunder Cat hum-bucker. They are also available as a single coil. “Being a big fan of the double cut body we felt it would be cool to offer the same look with a bass with a good pickup location to bring a short scale bass to another level,” says owner Billy Rowe. The bass comes strung up with Dunlop 65-105 stainless steel strings and includes a hard shell case.
