Which model Overwater bass do you play?
I play a Scott Devine J series bass with a few custom options, notably P-J pickups, birds-eye maple neck/fretboard, chrome hardware and the white gloss finish.
Why do you choose to play Overwater basses?
My first experience of Overwater was playing a couple of Phil Mann’s basses (a Progress and a J-series) while I was studying. I tried one of the SDJ basses at the London Bass Guitar Show in 2016, and from then on I was sold, I got in touch with the team shortly afterwards and they created my ‘dream’ bass.
A few years down the line, the bass has never let me down. I find the playability, versatility and sound to be second to none, and can’t recommend Overwater highly enough to anyone else.
How long have you owned an Overwater bass?
I received my Overwater in January 2017
