The PNB is a short scale acoustic bass guitar that utilizes a parlor body shape. This compact instrument is ideal for situations such as playing on the couch, outdoors, as well as more informal occasions. However the PNB is also a valuable on stage tool. Since the 25in short scale is similar in feel to a regular guitar, it is more comfortable for both guitarists and electric bassists to play than a full size acoustic bass. The shorter scale and compact parlor body also make it a more user friendly platform for beginners. Despite the compact body size, the PNB has an impressively powerful acoustic volume.
