I am very pleased with my Spade headless guitar, and impressed with the outstanding service I received. Bootlegger President Chuck Wilson emailed me when his tech did the final set up ,before delivery to me. When it arrived Chuck had placed 2 of his business cards in the case. I emailed him that I was very happy with the guitar. Shortly after he personally called me to follow up and if I had any questions. Jun 26th, 2019 by Gary E.
The Ace is a full 34 scale 24 fret performance bass guitar. At 8 pounds It is well suited for the traveling pro or the traveling enthusiast. All highest quality South Korean hardware and uses standard single ball strings. Our new Monorail bridge isolates each saddle / string so that it vibrates optimally, not allowing sympathetic vibration.
We use only the highest quality woods, three piece maple neck through construction body, ash body wings and beautiful high polished Brazilian Cherry Jatoba fret board. Comes with OHSC hard case ready for the road or overhead plane compartment. The Ace 4 string bass and Spade are designed by Bootlegger Guitar, and in the tradition of Bootlegger Guitar.

Since the 80's creative luthiers like Steinberger have challenged the standard by producing high quality guitars without heads. This unconventional, but savvy design places all of the hardware in one location.
Having everything in one place eliminates the need for a nut, which is a boon for your open notes and intonation in general. Without that extra wood and hardware at the end of the neck, balance of the guitar shifts to the body, alleviating the strain on your strap shoulder. Lighter, full scale, compact and works great as a travel bass.
Current headless bass builders such as Strandberg, Teuffel, Mayones, NS, Roehrs, Kiesel, Skervesen and Carvin make high end high quality headless guitars. Now Bootlegger Guitar is introducing the new ACE four string bass inspired by our Spade six string guitar. Both these high quality guitars are built by our factory Muse, South Korea, bring value and extreme playability enjoyment. The Ace and Spade are designed by Bootlegger Guitar, and in the tradition of Bootlegger Guitar. 98 Proof.
