[Bass of the Week] White Whale Seawolf

The feature bass this week was inspired by two of the builder’s favorite bass players.

Builder Augusto Sanchez from White Whale Guitars writes:

The inspiration for this bass was born in the idea of making an hybrid that two of my favourite bassist could use: Stuart Zender and Les Claypool.

Body woods are: walnut on top, mahogany in the middle and swamp ash in the back.

Neck woods are: wenge and ebony -fretboard-.

Pickups are Delano Hybrid humbucker for bridge position, and Delano Split Coil -paired for hybrid pickup- in neck. Preamp used is Delano Sonar 3 with a blend and toggle switch. And it’s both: active and passive. In passive mode pick ups are split coil and J, in active mode pickups are split coil and humbucker.

Well done!

  1. I’m curious about how the neck meets the body. I love the shape and the contours. I don’t suppose you’re selling this one?

  2. Beautiful, I bet that extended upper horn gets rid of any neck dive issues. Lovely. Any chance you can at least youtube or Soundcloud us with some sound examples?
