I’ve been very fortunate to have an Endorsement with AC Guitars, we decided to colaborate on a new idea for a Bass and here’s what we came up with.

Introducing the RetroB

Here’s the Blurb on it.

Much as the name suggests this is a design inspired by what has come before.

The RetroB specification is fixed other than a fretless option.The standard spec covers what we

had in mind for this particular bass and is fully priced on this page. If you want a wider range of op-
tions then you will need to move up to the Custom Series.
