Bass Guitars Tanglewood


Previously only available in limited numbers, Overwater basses are now much more accessible since designer Chris May began a partnership with Tanglewood. The £399 Classic J Series (pictured)


features a lightweight poplar body, Overwater Silent Single Coil PJ set pickups, Deluxe J Style machine heads, rosewood fingerboard and a choice of Solid Colour or Candy finishes. The Contemporary J Series four or five-string models (£579) come with maple fingerboard, flame maple top black backplate and active two- band electronics. Also from Overwater by Tanglewood is the Aspiration Artist Series, which includes a three-piece maple neck, White Ash body, active two-band EQ and Gotoh Style Mini machine heads. The four or five-string Aspiration Deluxe Series models (£649) feature active three-band EQs and Overwater Soapbar pickups, while the Aspiration Elite basses (£799) offer bolt-on necks and 8mm exotic hardwood tops. Tanglewood’s Rebel Basses (£199.95)


feature basswood bodies, maple bolt-on necks, rosewood fingerboards, Deluxe Die- cast Black machine heads and Entwistle PBX and JBX pickups.


Traben


Featuring a spalted maple top and exotic woods normally reserved only for high-end, hand made basses, the Traben Array Limited 4 (£407.49) offers active pickup circuitry and tribal flame bridge. All Traben basses have a unique custom look thanks to their distinctive bridge designs and this also leads to tonal benefits. The larger bridges are designed to provide added mass and additional bridge-to-body contact, as well as increased resonance. It’s also available as a five-string.
