Chowny SWB-1


Signature Bass

“My goal was to create the perfect short scale bass, great enough for professional use, but within reach of everybody.”

– Scott Whitley

Traditionally ‘short scale bass’ has largely been associated with student basses and limited, muddy tones – but not any more

The SWB-1 Standard 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. Available passive or active (with genuine EMG EQ system) and in solid ash or mahogany, fretted or fretless there’s an SWB-1 Standard to suit everyone. The angled pickups make for a more natural transition from low to high strings – the low strings stay nice and focused whilst keeping the higher strings fuller-sounding.
