Christopher 3/4 Size Bass with Detachable Neck – Used

Christopher 3/4 Size Bass with Detachable Neck is a great-sounding solution to traveling with a bass! The neck detaches to make this bass more portable. It is crafted with laminated spruce and maple, with an “antique” finish. The bass has an ebony fingerboard, and a bridge with height adjusters. Tune the bass with the Rubner machine heads. This bass comes with a bag and the shipping case, which has wheels. The bass had a previously owner so it is slightly used.

What Christopher Bass has to say about their innovative instrument:

Traveling with the bass is always a challenge. In particular traveling by air is getting more and more restricted and expensive for double bassists who want to take their instrument aboard. To make traveling with the bass easier, Christopher® has developed a double bass with a 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:

Removing the neck could not be easier: First, you start with tuning down the strings some turns, so the bridge can be removed. Then, release the strings from the tailpiece (which can stay on the bass).
After loosening the neck screw, you slide the neck forward and store it (with the strings) in the neck bag. The well padded soft case for the Christopher® RN can be used for both the assembled and disassembled bass.
Customed fully carved RN is available upon request.

But … what about the soundpost?

soundpostThe soundpost can get fixed by small and very lightweight foam blocks, which stick on the inside of back and top. They hold the soundpost securely even with strings off the bass. These foam blocks stay in the bass permanently, but can easily be removed and attached again for adjustments. Due to their very low weight, they virually have no dampening effect on the acoustic tone of the bass.

The 2-in-1-gigbag

The well padded soft case for the Christopher® RN can be used for both the assembled and disassembled bass. The removed neck is stored in a seperate pocket, which is slided into the softcase and secured with straps, the empty neck of the softcase is folded. The overall dimension of this package isn’t much more than the dimension of the bass body w 70 x l 130 cm.

An optional flight hard case is also available for the Christopher® RN.

Fits your car’s luggage space easily

With the neck removed, the Christopher RN is small enough to fit your car’s luggage space, a train compartment, or even a bike trailer easily.
