Waterstone Sandman 4string Bass

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ahh…
there is nothing quite like playing an instrument that looks, feels, sounds and plays great….

The Sandman Bass from Waterstone guitars fits each of these roles well.

Like it’s 6string companion, which was reviewed on these pages last week, the Sandman was created in tribute to the late Mark Sandman of Morphine fame. Unlike his custom basses, this model contains all 4 strings (but you could still play it with a slide.)

With a striking contoured upper bout, full 34″ scale and wood grain bass humbuckers- this bass is sure to turn heads- BEFORE you even plug it in.

Plugged in, this is a workhorse instrument. Featuring a separate volume and tone for each of the humbuckers, the tone ranges from low and moody to crisp and clean- with a simple turn of the knob.

This is one of the few Waterstone instrument’s  that is a full solid body instrument. This is constructed from an Asian hardwood known as Paulownia, with a bolt-on neck. It features a string through body tailpiece, that in conjunction with the rest of the features, presents a real beauty of a bass.

Priced extremely reasonably at $469.95 plus shipping, the Sandman also arrives with a hardshell case in… get this…. faux alligator.

Very cool instrument from a very cool guitar company.

Highly recommended.
