  1. Thunderous sounding even with a smaller scale

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Oct 2015

    I picked this little beauty up on recommendation from Glasvegas bassist Paul Donoghue who used it on the first Americas tour. Shorter scale for a smaller guy like me...well balanced and sits perfectly. My other bass is a Fender P bass and although it has a slightly thicker sound...the Map is my go-to Bass 75% of the time.
