Bass of the Week: Peter Hook’s Eccleshall Guitars “Hot Too”

Chris Eccleshall Custom Built Semi-Acoustic 335 Style Bass Guitar

Peter Hook has recently put up a load of his gear and memorabilia from his New Order days up for auction. This week we’re checking out a custom bass built for him by Chris Eccleshall. The semi-acoustic four-stringer, which he dubbed “Hot Too,” is crafted with a 335-style body and served as the backup to his main Eccleshall.

“The spare ‘main’ guitar. I was hitting the buggers so hard I was always breaking strings so needed a spare,” Hook writes. “Another Chris Eccleshall beauty. Sadly Chris died recently, rest in peace mate, you will always be with me. I have one of his best efforts (Viking One) to be buried with. So… straight through neck, Yamaha BB1200S electrics and the Bigsby Bridge and Whammy Bar! Bet you’ve never seen a bass with one of those on before!”

The bass is currently open to bids with the auction ending October 8th. For more info, check out the Omega Auctions website.
