Bass of the Week: Wood & Tronics Chronos

Wood & Tronics Chronos

Hand made in Italy, the Wood & Tronics Chronos is the company’s take on the single cut design, and a great one at that. Wood and Tronics was founded by Enrico Pasini and luthier Erik Furlan after Pasini, who was a frequent visitor and admirer of the Fodera Guitars shop, decided to follow his dream of making his own custom basses.

The Chronos is available in 4-, 5-, and 6-string models and can be customized to your heart’s content as far as woods, electronics and even construction.

Though each bass is unique, standard options offered include an East/W&T SP preamp, 32-36″ scale length, a 3-piece neck, and a satin finish.

Pricing varies on each instrument depending on options. For more info and a full list of options, check out the Wood & Tronics site.

    Well, the design as ugly as ho-made soap,….but it’s a good sounding “modern” bass.

    I like the “Ergon” model better it has a warwick/rickenbacker fusion look and it apears to be lighter and it’s also a bolt on, it would be nice to have one..
