Just In at City Music – Stu Hamm’s Electic Bass Series

Stu Hamm electric bass SHB30B
Stu Hamm Electric Basses are Available at City Music

They are here!  Just in at City Music: Stu Hamm’s electric bass series from Washburn guitars.   Starting at  $299,  wait ’til you hear that bold, slappin’ sound.

Stu Hamm is known throughout the world for his prowess on the bass, and he has partnered with Washburn Guitars to present the Stu Hamm Electric Bass Series. The series includes three models, the SHB30, the SHB40, and the SHB60.  Stu was hands on in the design and creation of these instruments.

The SHB30 features a basswood body with passive pickups and a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays.  The SHB40 has a mahogany body with active pickups and Stu Hamm’s signature yin-yang bass clef inlays.  The SHB60 features an alder body, with active pickups and piezos, offering a full sonic palette of tones to choose from.  All models come with bolt-on maple necks and black die-cast tuners.

The basses are also available in a wide range of finishes including silver sparkle and black for the SHB30, red sparkle and tangerine for the SH40, and natural matte and tobacco sunburst for the SHB60.  These basses sound and play great, and look good at the same time.

Acoustic vs. Electric Guitar – What is best for your beginning student?

A common question we get at City Music is: “Should my child start on an acoustic or an electric guitar? Shouldn’t he/she learn the basics on an acoustic, before starting electric?”

This is a valid question, and while we can’t say unequivocally ‘yes’ or ‘no’, we can give you pointers to help guide you.

Electric and acoustic guitars are essentially the same instrument: they both have six strings, they both are tuned to the same six notes. Beyond that, the electric/acoustic properties lend the two guitar types to different situations and different interests.
