Bass of the Week: Turan Guitars TG Semi-Hollow Bass

Turan Guitars TG Semi-Hollow Bass

This week we take a look at the TG Semi-Hollow, a gorgeous single-cut bass made by Turan Guitars. The semi-hollow bass is crafted with a korina body topped with flamed maple. The top is complemented with matching pickup covers, control knobs, and headstock. While this is an untraditional looking instrument, Turan utilizes traditional f-holes to tie the bass together.

The maple neck is matched with a ebony fingerboard that provides a nice visual contrast to the maple. Turan fits the TG Semi-Hollow with their own brand of pickups and preamp as well as a Hipshot piezo bridge and a Bartolini Buffer. Hardware also includes Hipshot tuners.
