Eastwood Guitars Teams with Seye Adelekan for the Classic 5 Seye Signature Bass

Eastwood Classic 5 Seye Signature Bass

Gorillaz bassist Seye Adelekan has been using the Eastwood Guitars Classic 4 on the road for years, but he recently contacted the company about needing a five-string bass. The retro-oriented company took the opportunity to make a signature bass for him, resulting in the Classic 5 Seye Signature.

The five-string semi-hollow bass carries over many of the features from Classic 4, with a few appointments specced out for Adelekan.

“New to the model is the matte black finish and gold hardware, along with a pair of Custom P90 pickups, which help compliment this short scale’s natural blooming, warm, and articulate tone,” Eastwood writes.

Adelekan’s new axe is built with a bound, laminated maple body and a maple top with bound f-holes. Other features include a floating wood bridge, a 30.5-inch scale, and a rosewood fingerboard with shark teeth inlays.

“The things that dreams are made of. I’m grateful to everyone over at Eastwood for the long-standing relationship and for this super cool limited run of fantastic instruments we have made together,” Adelekan shared on Facebook. “I am lucky enough to partner with some amazing instrument makers and gear makers but this one goes deep as they have been a part of my journey for a long time now. I am humbled and grateful.”

The Eastwood Classic 5 Seye Signature is available now for $999.99.
