DeArmond Ashbory

The Ashbory bass, invented by Alun Ashworth-Jones and designed by Nigel Thornbory, is an 18-inch scale fretless (but marked) electric bass developed in 1985. This scale is just over half the length of the 34-inch scale of an ordinary bass guitar. When amplified, the Ashbory produces a low, resonant bass tone similar to the tone of a pizzicato (plucked) double bass. Uses silicone rubber strings and an acoustic piezo-transducer pickup to create the instrument’s tone.

This would make a fantastic travel bass for someone! We have given the bass a full check over and everything works as it should
