Overwater Announces Inspiration Series Basses

Overwater Inspiration Bass

Overwater has introduced the Inspiration Series, a new range of basses built in their custom shop that are made in batch to keep prices down.

Available in 4 and 5-string versions, the basses come in solid color and Metallic Flare finishes, though Deluxe versions sport figured maple tops.

Common features to all the Inspiration Series are 3-piece maple necks, rosewood or maple fingerboards, and a 3-piece ash body. The pickups are a pair of Overwater’s soapbars matched with an Overwater/John East 3-band EQ. Gotoh tuners and a black Overwater Ultra Light bridge round out the hardware.

The Overwater Inspiration Series will be available later this month with prices ranging from £1295 to £1595 (approx. $2,086 to $2,569 USD). For more, check out the Overwater website.
