The Left Handed Wattplower Mike Watt Signature series is the result of a 4 year long exploration of tone by Reverend guitar and Mike Watt himself. The end product has produced the perfect balance between great playability, a unique look, and a killer sounding bass. The left handed Wattplower has a 30" scale, giving it a great feel and the inlays are Luminlay, making them easy to see on dark gigs and basements alike.
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 to play bass for punk royalty, The Stooges, as well as hundreds of solo 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, supreme playability, and ultimately looks uniquely Watt. The 30” scale and 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 bridge is 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” on the seventeenth. This one is worth the wait.
