Our VB15E offering is based on the VB10 model bass. However, when crafting the VB15E we use European tonewoods that are nicely figured and well-aged. As with our VB10 bass, careful attention to every detail is the norm with specific attention paid to the top and bottom plate graduations. The VB15E is first hand graduated in the traditional way but then undergoes a second graduation process using high-intensity lights to assure a specific and consistent density of the plates. The result is a superior tonal quality, which is rich, colorful, big, warm, and full.
