This Eastman VB105 Double Bass is fully setup by our luthier and is fitted with an adjustable bridge, Spirocore strings and Realist pickup system.

Description

The Eastman VB105 is a hybrid double bass with carved Spruce front, carved Maple back and laminate ribs. It has had its varnish hand applied which gives it a lovely visual finish. The carved front and back give the bass a great sound whilst the laminate ribs improve the robustness of the bass.

We have setup this Eastman VB105 as a jazz bass with an adjustable bridge, we’ve fitted Thomastik Spirocore strings, a Realist Lifeline pickup and a Realist Docking station.

The work we’ve carried out on this new Eastman VB105 double bass in detail is as follows:

  • Reshape top nut
  • Shoot fingerboard
  • Cut and fit grade A quality bridge
  • Fit bridge adjusters to bridge

(We don’t use off the shelf adjustable bridges because of quality. We pick a normal bridge and then make it adjustable with components that work well together)

  • Fit Endpin unit
  • Fit Tailpiece
  • Fit Thomastik Spirocore strings
  • Refit the Soundpost
  • Fit a Realist Lifeline pickup
  • Fit a Realist docking station volume control

The Eastman VB105 double bass is made by Eastman Strings and finished off by our luthier.
