Hense 12-String Bass

Hense 12-string basses were sold exclusively by the Martin Hense music store in Kaltenkirchen, Germany. The features are very comparable to the Galveston 12's with a brass nut, bat-wing inlays and similar headstock design. They are only available in the Transparent Black finish.

The control cavity has a separate compartment for the battery.
While wood screws attach the cover for the main compartment, brass inserts are included for the
battery compartment. A nice feature as the battery compartment will likely be opened more frequently.
