SB-3 3/4 Cremona Acoustic Upright Bass FLAMED! This is America's best value in a Flamed Maple bass. With its beautiful violin-shaped body and quality fittings such as the ebony fingerboard... You will surely be noticed wherever you and your bass might go.
Thick Ebony Fingerboard and Tailpiece
Great looking and great sounding bass. Tough, Durable Roadworthy Bass!
We personally set these basses up after we get them from the Cremona warehouse, and deliver a beautifully well setup bass to you like NO ONE ELSE is doing.
If anyone has a similar or lower price it is coming to you factory direct with a quickie "setup" done to it which will give you a higher clumsier action than you'll be happy with. OR it will buzz, slap and rattle if you lower the bridge for a low enough action. ALL new basses need skilled fingerboard dressing/reshaping so the strings can be lowered way down, for an easy playing action, without lots of buzzing/rattling.
ALL THAT IS INCLUDED WHEN YOU BUY FROM FMI, that's us.

**IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTES:
Free Shipping to “Qualified* Commercial Address” requires the address to have a loading dock, to be located within 30 minutes, or so, of a major city, on major U.S. shipping arteries and not more than 300 miles from our shop in Pasadena, CA.
A Qualified* Commercial Address is defined as a business address in an area that is incorporated or “Zoned” commercial and where a large truck has access to a loading dock. When choosing the “Commercial Address” option below be sure to include the name of the Business in the shipping address in the checkout process.
Shipping rates can vary greatly depending on where you live. More remote commercial shipping addresses on the East Coast, New England, New York, New Jersey as well as Florida or the upper Midwestern States such as North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, for example, require additional shipping charges usually running between $135 and $195, depending on where you are. These types of shipping destinations are more expensive to ship to from us here in California and some have gone over $200 more for delivery into remote or crowded expensive delivery areas in the Northeast.
The customer will need to make up the difference between the “Free” shipping allowance ($80) and the actual shipping costs. In any case, FMI will contact you if there is additional shipping due.
Shipping to a residential address is $65 more to any State as it takes special handling by the freight line.
