Semi-Hollow Bass Page
This page is dedicated to the Semi-Hollow Bass. It is called semi-hollow
due to about half of the volume of the body being solid while the other
center is hollow. This allows for a shape not possible with bent sides. The
body is also shallower than the Big Bufo and Baby Bufo instruments.
