1978 Renaissance bass in black lucite
Following on from the fabulous Fender lucite prototype, here's another lucite-bodied guitar, this time it's a Renaissance Bass from 1978 with a body fashioned from opaque black lucite rather than the usual see-through variety.

Renaissance guitars also appeared with see-through lucite bodies (such as this example) and with smoked-effect lucite (see this other example).

Renaissance guitars and basses were produced between 1977 and 1980 in Pennsylvania. As well as lucite bodies, guitars and basses featured DiMarzio pickups and active electronics.

This bass is currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2,795.

  1. I don't understand the point of this at all. As I understand it, lucite guitars are quite heavy, but of course they look really cool. So this is a really heavy guitar that looks just like a regular guitar?

    1. Well, if it sounds good & it saves trees...
