The Shaftesbury 3266
This long-necked Italian beauty is an absolute pleasure to lay your hands on. Like the 3265, she was manufactured by EKO in the early 70’s for Rose Morris and has a distinct cosmetic elegance that transcends all mockery of the obvious tele inspiration.
The neck is very long and thin as most electric basses were throughout the sixties and early 70’s. This feature coaxes a specific walking style out of the player, as it is very easy to cram more notes into a phrase. There is a definite “less is more” aesthetic to this instrument and features just one pickup, volume and tone control just like a Rock n’ Roll machine should.
