The famous 1960's Ampeg bass has been reissued as a much improved instrument called the AEB-2 and the fretless AUB-2. The scroll headstock is carved out of solid maple as is the neck. This new headstock replaces the plastic end caps of the original. There is also a brass head nut instead of the aluminum string spacer on the old ones.

Both the AEB-2 and AUB-2 use a 35-inch scale that is a full inch longer than the original. The Western ash body comes in sunburst, black or natural polyurethane finish. Other good things are: ebony fingerboard, Schaller tuners, brass bridge, Rick Turner designed pickups, and a choice of either gold or chrome hardware. There is an optional padded bag or hardshell case available.

For more about these new reissues, you can contact Ampeg at 1400 Ferguson Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63133. Call them at 314-727-4512 or FAX 314-727-8929
