Sceptre Guitars Desoto Standard Bass By Levinson Black SD1BK

Desoto Standard SD1 BK

Experience the classic sound of our meticulously crafted bass guitar. The North American Alder body delivers warm, rich mids, defining its signature tone. The neck, made from robust North American hard maple, features a black walnut fingerboard with a 34” (86.36 cm) scale and a 400mm (16”) radius, topped with a genuine bone nut for superior resonance. The instrument's beautiful finishes are highlighted by a striking white pearl pickguard.


Dual Levinson JB pickups, reverse wound and reverse coiled, ensure noiseless operation and clear, powerful sound. These pickups use ALNICO 5 magnets, providing a sharp, articulate bite. The control setup includes a classic volume, volume, and tone configuration mounted on a vintage-style chrome plate for intuitive and responsive handling.

A vintage-style bridge with a 19mm pitch, preferred by professional players, ensures stable tuning and precise intonation.
