Bass of the Week: Retrovibe T32 Telenbacker

Retrovibe T32 Telenbacker BassThis week we’re checking out a cool and affordable bass by Retrovibe called the T32 “Telenbacker”. The medium-scale bass is a mashup of Telecaster and Rickenbacker basses that weighs in at 8.2 pounds.

The bass is built with a basswood body and bolt-on maple neck that’s carved on the back of the heel area to fit the telecaster neck pocket. Retrovibe fits it with a pair of their black HyGane single-coil pickups with adjustable pole pieces.

“[The T32] has traditional Rickenbacker VVTT controls with a 3-way pickup selector giving a great range of tones,” the company writes. “It sounds like the love-child of a Precision and a 4001/3 with a focused low/mid and plenty of clang available should you need it.”
