    Story

    Vintage gear collector and ex-Bob Dylan sideman and Saturday Night Live bandleader GE Smith called the original Airline Pocket Basses "the best recording basses around." The Airline Pocket Bass is one of those odd instruments that a lot of people had asked us to reissue, so we knew the time had come - the original vintage examples are becoming very hard to find and getting ultra expensive.

    This time around we fixed a few of the original’s short-comings. We gave it a slightly longer scale length, upgraded the bridge and added some power to the piezo pickup. With our Pocket Bass, you get a fat humbucker in the neck position, a powerful piezo in the compensated bridge, a master volume, and a blend control to dial in between to the two pickups - allowing you to mix between the the treble-focused piezo sound and the darker humbucker, giving you plenty of tonal options in the studio. The result trumps the vintage version in the categories of tone and playability but captures and preserves the look of the original.
