This is a BSX Allegro upright acoustic electric bass with Bartolini pickups and includes a road case, gig bag, a bow and stage stand. "I played this bass many times on stage with the Zac Brown Band. I also used it in the recording of "Whiskey's Gone" from our second album entitled YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE. She took a spill on a very windy day at a TCU gig we played years ago. (They threw fried chicken on stage) There are a few cracks in the finish, but she still plays great. Beware! Stage stand is not windproof! ;-)" -John Driskell Hopkins. Bid now!
