Washburn Presents Stu Hamm’s Tone With a New Fretless Sound
The SHBH3FLTSS is a fretless version of the SHB3, adding warmth and the expressiveness of tone only a fretless bass can provide.
Stu Hamm’s prowess on the bass is the stuff of legends, and he has partnered with Washburn to release a fretless model of his signature electric bass, ‘The Hammer’. The SHBH3FLTSS is a fretless version of the SHB3, adding warmth and the expressiveness of tone only a fretless bass can provide.
Hamm’s fretless features 2 Exclusive EMG® X Series Stu Hamm pickups, Ghost® piezo pickups in a black hipshot bridge, and a double cutaway alder body. The bass is available in matte tangerine, tobacco sunburst sparkle or natural matte and will be sold at a price of $3139.90.
The bolt on maple neck of the SHBH3FLTSS features Washburn’s proprietary Radial Neck Joint. The fretboard itself is rosewood with fret lines, pearl dot inlays and Stu’s yin/yang bass clef insignia inlaid at the 12th fret. Black Hipshot® lollipop-style tuners with a D-tuner on the E string allows for extended range playing.
