This week we’re checking out the Chowny CHB-1, a semi-hollow body bass with lots of flair. Designed in the UK and manufactured in China, the bass centers around a maple body and neck. It comes in a variety of flamed maple finishes as well as flat black or flat white colors, all of which are accented with 5-layer binding.
Its ebony fingerboard holds 22 frets and is inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl blocks. The bass has a floating bridge with a chrome bridge plate. Chowny fits the CHB-1 with a pair of Artec vintage style humbuckers.
Finally, Chowny offers the model with the options of a pickguard or no pickguard and left or right-handed versions. For a taste of the bass’s sound, check out this demo:
