[an error occurred while processing this directive] BunnyBass represents: Rob Allen Guitars.
Allen's remarkable instruments are easily among the most satisfying
developments in recent electric bass and guitar design, combining
a perfect balance visual beauty, master craftsmanship, and sensible
musical instrument functionality. They are impeccibly made using
only the choicest materials, with superior playability and a careful
attentioin to ergonomics that make them a joy to play (they balance
perfectly and are very lightweight, generally in the 6 1/2 to
7 1/2 pound range).
And of course the sound - both the bass and baritone guitar models produce a range of sounds that can only be described as absolutely gorgeous. The instruments are extremely resonant - with a tone that is rich and deep, with a unique, organic quality that is truly addictive. It's obvious that Rob Allen's many years as a highly regarded session and touring musician now serve him well as a luthier. His experiences both in the studio and on stage have afforded him the time and settings necessary for the development of a keen sensitivity to good tone, and the result is immdiately apparent in every Rob Allen instrument we've played.
BunnyBass is pleased to assist you in the creation of a very special, one of a kind Rob Allen instrument. Many custom options are available for each of the models - the popular, groundbreaking MB series, the exciting (and cute!) Mouse 30 bass, and of course the stunning Deep 4/5 instruments with the blendable piezo and top transducer system. Our objective is to be of assistance to you during the planning phase, so that the right combination of options may be selected that perfectly combine to match your playing style and musical needs.
