Q: Are special strings needed for the Ultra-Light Bass?

A: Yes, each guitar comes with traditional strap pins.

Q: Does the guitar have a truss-rod?
A: Yes, the Ultra-Light Nylon has a fully adjustable truss rod, with easy access through the end cap.

Q: Like the Traveler Pro Series, does the Ultra-Light Bass have “Stethophones” or any personal listening device?
A: The Ultra-Light Bass was designed for compact size and light weight, so it does not have a built-in private listenting device. On the other hand, it does have an undersaddle piezo pickup and 1/4″ output jack for use with an external amplifier or headphone amp.

Q: Can the Ultra-Light plug into any of my amps?
A: Yes, the Ultra-Light Bass has a standard 1/4 inch output that is used for plugging into an amp.

A: The Ultra-Light Bass comes with an under-saddle piezo by Shadow.

Q: Are there any removeable parts on the Ultra-Light Bass?
A: Yes, the Ultra-Light Bass has a removable lap-rest frame.

Q: Is the scale of the Ultra-Light like my regular bass?
A: With its 30″ scale, the Ultra-Light bass is technically a short-scale bass. We built it this way to make it more portable, but you must find it very easy to play and similar enough to your regular-scale 34″ bass that your practice translates well.
