Stoll Guitars / The Legendary Acoustic Bass / Maple / Bass For Sale
Where others already fail the STOLL Acoustic Bass just gets into gear. Unusual volume and a well-designed interior life make this instrument a specialty in the realm of the acoustic bass.
A precise tone with a powerful force reminds the listener strongly of a double-bass. So it is sometimes affectionately called "the Double Bass to put on." With this bass you will be seen and heard!
With a body width of 530 mm, a depth of 142 mm (at the widest point) and a scale length of 864 mm, the Legendary Acoustic Bass stands out clearly from its competitors. Anyone considering the laws of acoustics, must come to the same conclusions as we did: Only a large sound box is able to effect a sonorous and vibrant sound. Consequently the Legendary Acoustic Bass can stand its ground unplugged in an acoustic ensemble.
Even small people can handle the bass by taking the recommended posture. When standing, the position can be easily adjusted by raising or lowering the neck. When sitting the body is placed between the legs, with the upper bout resting on the left knee.
In contrast to the large body the neck was designed extremely slim. Its width of 42mm (4-string) allows for comfortable handling. The Legendary Acoustic Bass is equipped with Elixir Nanoweb Medium Long Scale electric bass strings, which add up to the fat double-bass sound.
For interaction with amplified instruments we recommend the Element pickup by L.R. Baggs. This way, the Legendary Acoustic Bass will meet every demand, be it unplugged or plugged be it a Bossanova duo, Klezmer ensemble, bluegrass band, classical ensemble, jazz combo, folk band, be it at the campfire or in the studio with a microphone or wherever else reasonable acoustic bass sound is required.

Stoll Guitars, Germany
Handicraft - Made in Germany
We value clean and high quality handicraft and selected materials. Thereby we pursue the concept of quality "Made in Germany". All of our guitars are made of solid tonewood. Before processing these valuable tonewoods we keep them in our workshop for years to dry slowly, as it is best for their determination.
Our bindings are made of wood, nut and bridge are made of bone and dots and inlays are of mother of pearl.Small SeriesOur guitars (standard models) are built in small series of maximum 4 pieces. In this way, we save time and can still control the technical quality of our work. and keep the technical quality of our work fully under control. we combine time-saving work with the best possible view of the technical quality of our work.
Quality From the Start
Even with our entry-level models, we set high standards of quality. Good sound, good workmanship and solid tonewoods here are also a must, as in the upper price ranges.
Most of our woods we buy directly in the country of origin. We also dispense with expensive glossy brochures. The benefits we grant to you.
Enjoyment of Work
Only those who have pleasure in their work, do it good and conscientious. Therefore, all our employees, including the trainees, have their own field of responsibility, which is regularly reviewed and is growing with the acquired skills. By doing this we constantly give new challenges which makes work interesting and varied.
Economically, Environmentally, Politically Correct
For a handmade guitar from a local luthier you invest 100% of your money in the quality of the instrument, while the price of guitars from overseas is more than 50% of costs for transportation and middlemen. Short transport routes and the production under European environmental standards is environmentally friendly and reduces carbon emissions. By investing in a local quality product you will not only add value by over 100% but help to maintain our quality of life.
