The Orange O Bass is back and better than ever. The best bits of the original O Bass have been retained from the classic single cutaway body shape to deep, warm growl of the the split-coil pickup. And then come the improvements: A body made from west African okoumé wood and a fretboard now made from super-durable purpleheart balances the instrument to perfection whether it’s played stood up or seated, and with the fretwork and neck moulding retooled with playability in mind, jumping around the neck and funky octave swoops have never felt more natural.

The diverse options for tone are still in place, too: players with a softer touch can be transported to Motown territory, with earthy RnB overtones in abundance, but dig in a little deeper and the O Bass responds with an infectious harmonic grind that recalls the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. Alternatively, roll back the tone knob and revel in clouds of mellow dub and laid-back reggae.

This Glenn Hughes edition comes in a striking purple finish.
