    Steve Klein has been building guitars of signature design for years. Players such as Steve Miller, Joni Mitchell, Andy Summers, Joe Walsh, Bill Frisell, and Lou Reed have played his acoustics. Stanley Clark, Billy Sheehan and Sting along with others play Klein designed basses such as this one. In the 90s, Bob Taylor and Steve Klein collaborated on a series of acoustics basses to meet the needs of professional players while showcasing the eyecatching designs Klein is renowned for.
    The AB2 stems from that original series, a series that was made in limited numbers and consisted of only 3 models. Using harder, denser Imbuia (Brazilian Walnut) for the back, sides, and top produces a tighter, brighter, more direct sound - more like that of Taylor's 6-string guitars. Imbuia is a gorgeous dark walnut, and this particular set is figured beautifully from top to bottom.
