Chowny SWB-1 Passive

Traditionally ‘short scale bass’ has largely been associated with student basses and limited, muddy tones – not any more! The SWB-1 Scott Whitley Signature is a professional, modern-sounding short scale bass affordable to everyone.

The SWB-1 Scott Whitley Signature is an incredibly flexible bass and suits any style of playing – from growly traditional through to scooped, hi-fi slap tones and everything in between. Made of Ash, with a choice of finishes -the low strings stay nice and focused whilst keeping the higher strings fuller-sounding.

The 30.75” scale & beautifully slim yet substantial neck feel instantly easy & natural to play without stretching. The high mass chrome bridge provides 18mm string spacing which aids faster, easier playing without feeling too unfamiliar when coming from the 19mm spacing used on most bigger basses. The simple yet elegant body shape is extremely comfortable with its smooth rounded edges.
