Hello from me
Hello fellow Overwater aficionado’s,
My name is Kev, and I live in Killingworth North Tyneside.
I’ve been a fan of Chris’s work since I was a fourteen year old school boy who spent his Saturday afternoons with my nose pressed up against the window of “Chris & Andy’s” on High Bridge ogling the latest creations.
Eventually, after a thirty year gap I bought my first Overwater, a five string J series which remains my main gigging bass.
Subsequently, I’ve added a five string Perception, which was expertly defretted and refinished by local luthier and ex-Overwater employee David Wilson, and a five-string Original series, which was back at the Carlisle workshop recently for some TLC from Martin & Chris.
My current main gig is a tribute to southern rock called “The Dirty South” who play across the North East and further afield on the bike rally scene.
Nice collection. They all look good and all will do a different job. I remember that shop as well, or I think I do. The one I remember was on a street heading down to the Tyne on the north side if I recall. It was a long time ago since I was there - around 84/5 I think.
