Priced for the young musician on a budget but offering great tone and playability, the Dean Hillsboro Junior 3/4 Size Electric Bass Guitar is a great choice for those with smaller fingers and/or guitarists who want to switch to bass occasionally. Even though the scale length is 30 (compared to 34 or 35 for standard electric basses) there's no compromise in tone. The Hillsboro Junior bass has a basswood body and top with a bolt-on, C-shaped maple neck and fretboard. The body design and pearl dot inlays provide classic styling while the sleek finish adds a modern shine. Split P bass style pickups with volume and tone controls offer a simple yet effective means of finding your sound.
