RN Removable Neck Bass by Christopher
Removable neck 3/4 Gamba shaped travelling bass.
Travelling with the bass is always a challenge. In particular travelling by air is getting more and more restricted and expensive for double bassists who want to take their instrument aboard.
To make travelling with the bass more easy, Christopher has developped a double bass with removable neck. As the makers of the Eminence bass, Christopher has much experience in making portable basses with removable neck. Due to the steel dovetail joint, the neck is removed and assembled within a few minutes.

Removing the neck couldn’t be easier
For removing the neck, you start with tuning down the strings some turns, so you can remove the bridge. Then, release the strings from the tailpiece (which stays on the bass). After loosening the neck screw, you slide the neck forward and store it (with the strings) in the neck bag.
