The fretboard is rosewood with fret lines, pearl dot inlays and Hamm’s yin/yang bass clef insignia inlaid at the 12th fret.
Black Hipshot lollipop-style tuners with a D-tuner on the E string allows for extended range playing.
The bass is available in matte tangerine, tobacco sunburst sparkle or natural matte and will be available for $3,139.90.
Washburn is also introducing its Stu Hamm Electric Bass Series. It includes three models, SHB30, SHB40 and SHB60, each of which found Hamm heavily involved on the production.
The SHB30 features a basswood body with passive pickups and a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The SHB40 has a mahogany body with active pickups and Stu Hamm’s signature yin-yang bass clef inlays. The SHB60 features an alder body, with active pickups and piezos, the addition of which offers a plethora of tones to choose from. All models come with bolt-on maple necks and black die-cast tuners.
The instruments are available in a large variety of finishes including silver sparkle and black for the SHB30, red sparkle and tangerine for the SH40, and natural matte and tobacco sunburst for the SHB60, adding an enviable aesthetic quality in addition to great sound.
