Bass Club Chicago spent some serious time seeking out an affordable yet high quality Acoustic bass to offer to our customers, once we came across Boulder Creek the decision was easy.  These basses are well built and have several great features.  The sound is rich and full when unplugged and very powerful and clear when plugged in.  Also for the price point, I dont think there is a better Acoustic/Electric bass out there.  Below are some specs

The tops, sides, backs, and necks are selected from high quality woods from all over the world. Both solid spruce and solid cedar tops are available. Backs and sides are available in both mahogany and rosewood.

Features and Specifications

The “Solitaire” Series uses the same “SBS” bracing system as the “Stage & Studio Series” guitars. The “Solitaire” was designed for the player, not the audience. Rather than a front port to project the sound outward, the “Solitaire” features a port on the top side of the guitar to direct the sound to the player. Since guitar players spend over 90% of the time playing with just themselves and their guitar, the “Solitaire” is the perfect choice for your second guitar.

There were some interesting results when the first “Solitaire” samples arrived. Even though the guitars were designed for the player and not the audience, the front sound projection was incredible. Since the soundboard increased in size due to not cutting a hole in the front, it produced more treble, midrange, and overall volume. The sound port on the top of the guitar produced enhanced low range frequencies which could be heard all around the room as low frequencies are omni-directional. In other words, this guitar sounds incredible out front also! When partnered with the AB4-T Preamp system, it makes the perfect guitar for stage, professional recording, and home studio applications. With the “Solitaire’s great playability and tone, it’s the perfect choice for any working musician. (And it also looks really, really cool.)

Boulder Creek Guitars was born from an idea that was developed over 15 years ago by Mike Shellhammer. Mike, having spent his life in the music industry as a musician, store owner and product developer felt that there was a better way to brace a guitar than what was considered standard. Mike’s idea was based on the theory that, if he was able to develop a suspended bracing system that would support the string tension of an acoustic instrument while leaving the soundboard intact, and moving the sound hole to the side of the guitar, it should sound better and create better tone and sustain. This idea was the birth of Boulder Creek Guitars. Through trial and error- testing of prototypes and materials, the idea and the realization came together. Aluminum rods became the key component, as they provided the needed strength. “The aluminum rods transmit the strings vibration and energy throughout the body of the instrument creating a tone balance and sustain that have made Boulder Creek Acoustic instruments the award winning instruments that they are today” said Shellhammer. The benefit to the musician is that Boulder Creek has developed an incredible sounding instrument that does not experience the same feedback issues associated with the “standard” acoustic guitar. Players and sound engineers alike rave about Boulder Creek instruments on stage because they are trouble free and do what they are supposed to do! Add to that a completely cool and different look, and you have an instrument that grabs the attention of any audience. Boulder Creek’s patented SBS bracing system has re-written the books on acoustic instruments. The unique style, affordability and performance have taken a very young company to the forefront of the guitar world. Come in and see what has developed from the idea that Mike Shellhammer brought to life. Come see what you’ve been missing!
