    Nuvo Proto!!!

    This is the original Nuvo!
    built in 2015, The bass is small but a real show stopper. It fits in a guitar case, weighs around 5 pounds and sounds every bit as deep as a full size instrument. The bass produces it’s signature deep tone because of the relationship of the thin body and the strings. This Nuvo is unique as I’ve tweaked the design since it’s completion.

    The Proto Features:
    1 pc Mahogany body
    Mahogany/Maple neck.
    Nordstrand Split Coil pickup.
    Passive Vol, Tone
