Chris Wood's S-Bass

Chris Wood bass live

“I love the bass. You made an amazing
combination of new slick design meets vintage sound that plays easier
than any bass I’ve played.  I keep comparing it to my old fenders
thinking that there is no way it could hold up but it does and it’s
more fun to play.  It’s so lightweight and thin that it almost feels
like a toy after wearing a fender.  But that’s what makes it so
comfortable and easy to play.  It hangs in the perfect place with a
strap.  The whole neck is easily accessible.  It looks cool and sounds
fat.  It makes me play more relaxed which is always better for the music.”
