Bass of the Week: 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.
