The GB Rumour ©

an original GB creation

"My guitars are built with the three key factors that determine the choice for bass players and guitar players alike... The aesthetic appeal of the instrument, more importantly the feel and ultimately, the sound. Approximately 20 years ago I saw an image of a woman that inspired me to design a bass guitar with a sleek and sexy shape. She is the GB Rumour ©." Bernie Goodfellow

The GB Rumour © is a superbly comfortable instrument to play. The slim elegant contours will tell you that you're not carrying any excess baggage, which is important for comfort, control and playability whether you are playing 4, 5 or 6 strings.

The Swamp Ash or Alder body can be finished in just about any colour of your choice. Or if natural timber is your preference. Check out the Rumour ©, Merlin © and Spitfire © galleries.

The Rumour © has a 5 piece laminated thru-neck for superb stability and strength. A 35 inch scale string length on the 5 and 6 string versions increase string tension for a tight response from the bottom B. A removable dual-action truss-rod is fitted as standard with Rosewood, Maple or Ebony fingerboards. All Rumour © basses are available with a choice of Hipshot A Style or Schaller M2000 bridges with Schaller strap buttons and Schaller M4 machine heads; which can be fitted with hand made Rosewood or Macassar Ebony tuning pegs for improved comfort, playability and aesthetic appeal. The results are stunning.
