    One must be very cautious when playing on a Unicorn bone fretboard. The magic bone essence can be toxic, that's why Scott wears the gloves. The trade off is an enhanced superior playing ability. Scott is obviously an amazing player!!!

    They build great basses that practically play itself. I used to have a 36" 5 string that was amazing sounding instrument, sheer tonal beauty - just couldn't get around the 36" and traded it on TB. A few days ago I obtained a 4 string (one of the Progress Elite III types) at 34" and am discovering new things I can play on it every day. Exited!

    Being a helluva player may also have something to do with it. ;-)

    They're stunning instruments. I kind of lol'd during one of his videos where he was talking about getting the best tone, and he said "I just leave my amp flat!" Like, yeah dude. You play a freaking Overwater. That thing would sound good through a lil' smokey.

    My question is, what's the deal with the glove? I'd never seen that before, then a week or so later I saw a video of a guy at NAMM wearing the exact same glove.

    He has a nerve disease, he wears them so as not to aggravate the condition.

    THANK YOU! That had been driving me absolutely bonkers. Bummer for Scott, though.

    Yes bummer for him or anyone for that matter to have to deal with such a thing. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

    But, an amazing example for me to go beyond whatever circumstances and "Get in the Shed". If I were confronted with the same challenge, would I not only find a way to work around it, but put myself in front of a global audience to help other players? ....or would I press the easy button and say...."It's too hard....I can't do it..."?

    He's an amazing talent and I draw so much from his lessons and attitude. Total respect!!!!!

    No US dealer necessary.

    I have an Overwater J5-24....spoke and eMailed directly with Chris May and mostly Martin Lee. Easy process and great gentlemen to work with. You can eMail Martin at martin@overwaterbasses.com . After confirming specifications I wired them a deposit. 4 months later I wired the remaining money and they shipped the bass.
