The company's first acoustic bass features a scaled-down body with a solid mahogany top and a Fishman Sonitone preamp system.
Los Angeles, CA (March 2, 2020) -- Orangewood Guitars announced today the launch of the Oliver Jr. Bass, their first acoustic bass, as a special release within their signature Overland Collection. The mini bass is modeled after Orangewood’s fan favorite Oliver Jr. Guitar model with a scaled-down body and impressive full-size voice. For players looking for a well-balanced acoustic bass option, the Oliver Jr. Bass is a winning combination of high-quality playability and affordability.
The Oliver Jr. Bass is made with a solid mahogany top to enhance the punchiness in the low to mid-range and to add a “woody” tonal texture. In addition, every bass comes with a Fishman Sonitone Preamp System for gigging bassists looking to amplify their sound. With a shorter scale and lightweight body, the Oliver Jr. Bass was designed for easy portability and a comfortable hold.
