Bass of the Week: Healy Guitars Healer Bass
This week we check out the Healy Guitars Healer Bass. Based in Easthampton, Massachusetts, the company is headed by luthier Trevor Healy, who spent years honing his craft under the legendary Roger Sadowsky, Joe Zon, and others.
The Healer is a take on a classic bass and features a curvy, offset mahogany body. Its set-neck is also made of mahogany and is topped with a rosewood fretboard inlaid with bone dot fret markers. The headstock is capped with ebony to contrast with the Healer’s cream acrylic pickguard.
Healy fits the bass with a pair of TV Jones Thundertron pickups, which the Jones website describes as having “thunderous bottom-end with superior dynamic sensitivity and punch.” The bass is rounded out with Goth Ultralite hardware, vintage radio knobs, and a urethane finish.
