Overwater Custom J5 Fretless
It's here! After a little wait & as usual, exquisite luthier work by the team at Overwater Basses & continued support. We have an Overwater Custom J5 Fretless with a few custom options.
Listed below will be the full but here are the custom features I've added.
Walnut top & headstock facing
Swapping out the bridge position J pickup and dropping in a Musicman pickup.
Added passive tone control (as usual for myself)
This bass was specced & delivered very quickly for a specific tour to start shortly this year. It was commissioned due to the need of a 5 string fretless bass for quite a few tracks. Have two fretless basses in my collection already - 1976 Musicman Stingray & an early 1970's P Bass. Both four strings so not ideal for the job.
I would like to send my thanks to Kirsty, Martin, Chris & the whole team at Overwater Basses for the amazing basses they make daily & for the continued support from the company also.
