***SOLD*** Richwood 3/4 Bass in black – ‘hot-rodded’ short scale


Out of stock


*** SOLD ***

This little bass sparked the whole short-scale journey I’ve been on in recent years.  I heavily modded it and it became my main gigging bass for a good few years!!  I used it with countless artists both live, and in the studio including The Animals, Steve Cropper, Chip Kendal, Philippa Hanna and many more…

In my mind, it’s a baby ‘Jazz’ style bass, it’s a 30″ scale with a basswood body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.   The original pickups I found a little bright, so swapped them out for Dimarzio Model J and  I added a heavy bridge and an EMG BTC Control active EQ System.  I then had a new scratch plate made to accomodate different switching options.  Currently the controls are: Parallel/Series switch; 3-way Pickup Selector switch; Master Volume & stacked active bass/treble cut/boost.

Check out this thread feature this bass for an amusing eye-opener – http://basschat.co.uk/topic/128886-bass-poll-your-opinion-greatly-appreciated/

The bass is in great overall condition, with some obvious signs of wear from endless hours of playing.  There are also a few small dings/scratches, again all in line with being a working instrument.

See and here it in the video below…..
