Solid Cedar Pau Ferro U•BASS®
The Solid Cedar Top Pau Ferro Fretted U•BASS® combines a Solid Cedar top with Pau Ferro back and sides or as we like to call it—the “Mid Century Modern” U•BASS® because of its distinct, asymmetrical rosette of Maple and Pau Ferro. The warm harmonics of Cedar combines with the brightness and clarity of Pau Ferro to allow lows and highs to shine through. The contrast between the honey-colored Cedar and the darker brown Pau Ferro makes a fine pairing. Available in a fretted model.

I’ve had my U.Bass for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. The very first thing I noticed upon unboxing was the fantastic smell of the cedar. Very pleasant! The finish is beautiful and the neck is silky smooth. The strings do take a few days to get used to, as I’ve played LaBella flat wounds on my electric bass for over 40 years. But once you stop thinking about how different they feel, the playing becomes completely normal and they have a fantastic upright bass sound when plugged into an amp. This thing goes deep! Speaking of which, the Fishman electronics are top notch with no humm, hiss or unwanted noises. Just pure tone. It was a happy discovery to find that the neck has a truss rod, which allowed me to set it up just as I wanted. This Cedar Pau Ferro bass may be at the upper end of the U.Bass line price wise, but I’m so glad I splurged for it. It looks, smells, plays and feels like a top notch instrument. I see years of enjoyment with this little guy.
