Reverend Mike Watt Wattplower Bass

It all started for Mike Watt in San Pedro, California. That’s where he met D. Boon and George Hurley – who would later form The Minutemen – a band that would inspire legions. Watt went on to form fIREHOSE, and play bass for punk royalty with The Stooges, as well as hundreds of projects with musicians around the world. The Reverend Mike Watt Signature Wattplower is the result of a four-year exploratory between Watt and Reverend to produce a bass guitar with the perfect balance of sonic explosiveness and supreme playability, and ultimately looks uniquely Watt. The 30″ scale, compact size, along with touches like the Luminlay dots on the side of the neck are perfect for any player used to dark stages and long sets. The neck is made of Korina, 3 pieces laminated for strength – and features a rosewood fingerboard. The bridge is a Hipshot A Style Brass for great intonation and lots of sustain. And because it’s Watt, there’s an anchor inlay at the first fret and “Wattplower” at the seventeenth. This one is worth the wait.
