CTB Carved Top Bass

The NS-2 CT-B is a unique take on the classic NS-2. The extremely comfortable, fully carved body features a reclaimed Redwood top and an 85% chambered Alder body for maximum resonance. A bolt-on 3 piece maple neck instrument a 24 fret Pau Ferro fingerboard rounds out the construction of this truly special instrument. Outfitted with a two-piece ebony/rosewood bridge, brass nut, this bass produces a rich, full tone. A unique combination of an EMG 35CS or Aguilar DCB pickup, a Fishman piezo, and Aguilar’s OPB-3 tone control systems allows for maximum flexibility. All USA Series basses are handcrafted to order and are available with a variety of custom options.
