Long-scale hollowbody semi-acoustic bass guitar in black. 9/10 condition, neck pristine. Black finish means it looks mean and magnificent! The body is a lot thinner than you'd expect.
These seem to have been the model for the Chowny CHB series. I have owned a Chowny and a Jack Casady and have found the Aria TAB-66 to be the equal of both. (The bridge and tailpiece beat the Casady bridge hands down). The two pickups can be used separately or together; the neck varies from Rickenbacker to Rivoli, while the bridge pickup adds a more percussive, modern bite.
The finish is that of a luxury bass, and the balance on the strap is good with no neck dive. I bought this to use with my folk-rock band, and it certainly looks and sounds the part. Really wish I could bond with it, but I am too comfortable with my Fenders.
Comes with an almost-fitting gig bag that works fine for transport.

After purchasing this Chowny SWB Pro off @whynot at the beginning of October i have made the decision that short scale isn't for me, so have made the decision to move it on.
I haven't gigged with it, but it has been gigged by it's previous owner, and is in very good condition with no visible dings or dents.
It is currently strung through the bridge with very light gauge strings, as opposed to through the body. I also have the heavier gauge strings that it came off the production line with courtesy of @whynot which are included in the sale.
With it being strung through the bridge when i received the bass the string retainers on the back of the bass had been removed & put in a bag. I have put them back in to take the photo's but I will do the same if i need to ship. I suspect the previous owner did this to prevent them being lost.
I know at the present time Chowny have suspended making left handed models, as i made an enquiry at the beginning of September, & looking at the Chowny website you still cannot order left handed models. So grab yourselves a bargain why you can.
The price includes shipping within the United Kingdom.
For collection i'll look at reducing the price to £450.
