A desire to bring an instrument to the 2013 NAMM Show that celebrates 30 years of business, one of our most popular models and one of our dearest friends (Matt Garrison) resulted in this exceptional instrument. What we have here is a traditional Matt Garrison Signature model in every sense except for the very notable upgrade of a stunning Brazilian Rosewood non-solid top.
Joey and Vinny remember this piece of Brazilian being here in the shop since at least the late 1980's...all that time just waiting to find the right home! The top does add a touch more brightness and complexity to the tonal palate of this bass -- compared to a "traditional" Matt Garrison Signature (having either a Chestnut or Buckeye Burl top). A dream to play, a dream to look at and listen to...
