Chowny Bass Unveils the SWB Pro

Chowny Bass SWB Pro Basses

Chowny Bass has expanded their lineup with the SWB Pro, an upgraded version of the bass designed with bassist Scott Whitley. While the short-scale model retains many features, there are a handful of updates. The SWB Pro comes in two finishes – Matt Ash/Walnut or Gloss Ash with Quilt Maple – with other new features including a satin five-piece maple and walnut neck, Wilkinson tuners, and a matching set of EMG Jazz pickups. An 18-volt EMG 2-Channel Active EQ comes as standard.

A three-way switch selects your pickups, while the knobs control volume, bass, and treble. Left and Right-handed versions are available.

The Chowny Bass SWB Pro is available for pre-order now for approximately $1,105. They are expected to ship in November.
