The BMC-1STE is a beautiful, great sounding acoustic bass that punches way above its price bracket. Originally part of Martin Guitars, Sigmas are very similar to their higher end cousins but affordable enough to be a first guitar.
Versatile and Reliable
Mahogany Sides and a solid spruce top means this bass has a really warm sounding tone with great sustain. If your playing unplugged it sounds amazing and with a great quality pickup onboard you can plug straight into the PA if you're working with a full band. If you want to get a really vintage acoustic bass tone without having to carry around a full size standup. The neck feels comfortable and you can really dig in when you need too without worrying about string buzz
