The AVNB1E also comes with a Fishman Sonicore pickup that translates the vintage tone of the AVNB1E beautifully when amplified.

Beautiful tonewood features

The AVNB1E is a compact parlor-style acoustic bass guitar that travels well. It's the perfect size for beach jams, living room singalongs, or just sitting on the couch exploring your own style. The solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back, sides, and neck kick out the kind of tone that you normally hear from an aged instrument — full-bodied low end and an even sustain in the treble strings, signature features of vintage acoustic bass guitars. The AVNB1E also has a shorter 25" scale that makes it especially easy to play.

Detailed appointments and portability

In addition to the quality tonewoods, the AVNB1E also features gorgeous appointments like a bone nut and saddle, cosmo black die-cast tuners, and an AVN wooden multi-rosette soundhole. With the AVNB1E, you're getting an acoustic that looks and sounds like it came from another era. Sweetwater players have been impressed with this very affordable acoustic and love its tone and playability.
