Ever wanted to easily take your electric bass guitar with you when you travel? Now you can with the new Rambler® Custom Bass! This travel size bass guitar breaks down to fit in your luggage. Simply remove the patented StringKeeper™ to wrap the strings around the body and take off the neck by loosening four thumbwheels. The body and neck can then be stowed separately for travel. The Rambler® portable guitar bass goes back together in less than two minutes with no tools required.
The Rambler® Bass is a professional electric bass guitar introduced at the Newport Guitar Festival in April 2010. The overall length of the Rambler® Bass is 35” when assembled, with a 28 ½” scale length. The Strobel™ Bass plays and sounds like a Fender® Precision Bass. Also available as a Fretless model, it can be ordered with an optional Fretless neck. We offer Schaller® PBX pickups, Schaller® 3-D4 fully adjustable roller bridge and Schaller® custom tuning machines.
The Rambler® comes with a removable StringKeeper™ for fast assembly and a StringCatcher™ to protect the finish when the strings are wrapped around the body. The neck has 21 medium jumbo frets, a double-action truss rod, and an adjustable nut. Custom guitars are finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer with your choice of color, and offer personalized neck shaping with your initials inlaid in the fretboard. When ordering a custom Rambler® Portable Bass Guitar, you select the wood for the body – typically Swamp Ash or Honduran Mahogany with a Flamey Maple top. Available neck woods include Maple or Mahogany with your choice of Pau Ferro, Ebony or Rosewood fretboard. The Strobel Rambler® Custom Travel Right- and Left-Handed Bass Guitars start at $1599 with a 50% deposit due at time of order.
