Vite S9V

Color: Gloss Charcoal Burst


At first glance, the Bella Tono S9V is an obvious pairing to the S9 boasting the same eye-catching high gloss charcoal-burst Spruce top and figured Walnut back & sides. The S9V differs in that it features a cutaway body design, the Barcus Berry LX4 pickup system for amplified possibilities and a breath-taking exotic-wood vine inlaid Ebony fingerboard. The Washburn Studio body design makes for an incredibly comfortable playing experience while managing to maintain the tight lows, focused mids and clear highs commonly associated with larger body sizes. Its full 25.5″ scale length extends an undeniable familiarity to the player and the satin finished, modern “C” profile of the Okoume neck is smooth and cozy feeling in the hands.
