R. Low Vaughn Instruments Panzer Bass

R. Low Vaughn Instruments has introduced a new budget model that’s made in the United States. The Panzer series is made by luthier Rob Vaughn in his Boise, Idaho shop with set features to streamline the process and reduce cost.

Each bass is built with a Sapele body, flamed maple neck, and a bocote fretboard. Vaughn fits them with a set of EMG PAX pickups that will be housed in soapbar covers for ease of installation, he says. Hardware includes Hipshot Ultralite tuners, a Hipshot A style brass bridge, and a Graphtech nut.

The R. Low Vaughn Instruments Panzer series bass will be available soon for around $750 including a hardshell case.

    what’s up with the block behind the bridge? if it’s purely aesthetic, those three holes kinda screw that up.

    These mediocre bass guitars are barely worth $100!
