    Overwater Phil Mann Signature Series Custom 5-String Bass
    Handmade UK goodness!!

    Build complete: November, 2018
    $1000 Price Drop!

    This beautiful bass was handmade in the UK by Overwater Basses. It's probably the nicest and most versatile bass I've ever played. The only reason I'm considering selling is because I'm downsizing and could use the cash elsewhere.

    A couple of key features:
    • Jenz spiral-post tuners (www.jenztuners.com) - releases headstock tension and prevents dead spots
    • John East J-Retro Flat-Response Preamp (www.east-uk.com) - active preamp with sweepable mid and passive tone control
    • Extended neck joint - gives the sustain of a neck-through bass in a 34” scale with 24 frets!
    Perfectly balanced. At 9lb 12oz it can be played for hours with no fatigue.

    This is the one bass that can do it all!

    With shipping and hardshell case, this bass retails for well over $5400 and takes approximately 16-20 weeks to build.

    I found a couple of very tiny spots on the edge of the headstock. Barely visible. See pics. Otherwise, this bass is perfect.

    Continental US Only.
