Artist APB Black Bass Guitar w/ Accessories

Please Note: We are in the process of changing model names of some of our guitars. The PB2 and APB are the same specification.

We believe it's important to have a great quality instrument to kick off your musical career. These bass guitars are designed to be easy to play so they are a great starting point if you want to pick up a bass for the first time. This is a full-size bass and is recommended for Adults or Children over the age of 12 (or younger if your child is strong and taller than 1.2m).

This classic design is very similar to models used for decades on all of your favourite recordings! This style of bass is absolutely timeless, and is great for any style of music from funk, to blues to slap and rock'n'roll!

Our price is always lower than a retail store (often by 30-40%), and we keep our prices low by only selling our own range of guitars direct from the factory. Our business is built on offering a great value instrument at a great price.

Why wait to start learning bass guitar when you could get one of our great APB bass guitars and be playing in no time at all?

I was so pleasantly surprised as with other websites, packages can take weeks to arrive so thank you for your prompt delivery service, I would be happy to write another review after Christmas and perhaps purchase the amp for the bass guitar Keep safe and keep smiling, thank you Barb

My first bass, bought it for my band when I was originally rhythm guitarist, super surprised with the quality for only $200. It plays and sounds great, no flaws
