Cadet Bass

The Cadet Bass is our companion to the Cadet guitar. Filling the void of short scale, 30” basses available to musicians, the Cadet bass offers the player, professional as well as student, the ability to get a handcrafted, extremely well playing instrument for a midrange price. It appeals greatly to the punk genre, and those seeking something that will accommodate smaller hands and extreme ease of playability.  This bass comes stock with unique D’Addario tapewound strings. Compare our craftsmanship, hardware and components to any boutique builder doing a similar model – that is, if you can even find one!
