Manne Guitars Introduces VibraBass

Manne Guitars Vibrabass Satin - full view

Italian boutique builder Manne Guitars has expanded their bass offerings with the VibraBass. Inspired by the AcoustiVibe guitar, the new bass features a fully chambered body made of Korina with an Italian poplar burl top, a maple/beech laminate neck, and a thin, hard resin fingerboard.

Besides a magnetic single coil pickup mounted in the bass’s sound plate, the VibraBass is fitted with a custom high-output piezo as part of the Manne Piezo Bridge. The two pickups can be blended together using a single notched blend pot/knob, which the company says provides a very wide range of tones.
