Introducing our latest release, the "Toadcaster" shortscale bass. Packed with intriguing features, this bass stands out with its angled headstock, providing exceptional sustain uncommon in most shortscale models. Aptly named after the deep croak of toads, it embodies a unique sonic character. Freshly unveiled, the Toadcaster boasts vintage P-51 pickups, ensuring a distinctive tonal profile. Beyond its sonic prowess, playing this bass is a delight, seamlessly blending simplicity with a rich, enjoyable experience.
