Crafter may seem to be a relatively new Brand on the Australian Guitar landscape however, you may be surprised to know that Crafter is actually one of the UK’s biggest selling guitar brands where it has delighted and inspired musicians at all levels for more than forty five years!
The secret of Crafter’s success is immediately apparent with superb handcrafted build quality and the use of premium materials along with superb tone and playability normally associated with instruments costing a great deal more. It’s a fact that Crafter’s instruments exude quality at every level and it shouldn’t be a surprise to know that Crafter build fine instruments for other Brands too.
The Crafter BA550EQ Acoustic Bass is the perfect instrument for variety of situations. Whether you are on Stage, in the Studio, jamming with friends or longing about at home, this beautiful Acoustic Bass won’t let you down.
With a wonderfully natural Acoustic Bass feel and rich tonal palette from the Maple and Ash combination, the dovetailed Mahogany neck with its Rosewood Fretboard and 22 nickel silver frets will become your creative playground. The cutaway body design offers unhindered access to upper end of the fretboard.
Plug it in and you won’t believe your ears. The L.R.Baggs Element undersaddle transducer is controlled by an L.R.Baggs L-T Pro active Pre-Amp, delivering amazing tone shaping capabilities. The built-in Chromatic Tuner ensures that you will sound your best everytime!
Its a fact that Crafter offers unsurpassed value for money. With instruments that look and play as though they should cost a lot more than our modest asking price, the playability has to be experienced to be appreciated. Premium timbers, hardware, electronics and superb workmanship all come together in a range of instruments that will stand up to scrutiny against anything else in their price range. As well as our PRO-SCM setup, we have strung this Crafter BA550EQ/MS acoustic bass with Nickel plated Flat Wound strings. The results speak for themselves with a well defined yet warm, natural woody acoustic tone that when amplified through the L.R.Baggs Preamp/Pickup system sounds simply inspirational.
