SUPRO HUNTINGTON 3 BASS W/PIEZO ~ TRANSPARENT BLUE
The Supro 2043 Huntington III is a newly-designed, short-scale bass combining the classic body shape of the early ‘60s Ozark model with vintage-correct passive electronics and sonic inspiration from the Supro Pocket Bass of the same era.
The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Huntington bass are authentic replicas of the original “Clear-Tone” pickups found in the vintage Supro Violin, Taurus and Pocket Bass models. These high-output single coils deliver legendary, deep low-end, with very low noise and a massive, broadband sound that stays warm and balanced across the entire range of the instrument.
The Supro Huntington bass is available in single, double and triple pickup configurations with an optional piezo bridge and a variety of unique metallic and transparent colors over a choice of Mahogany, Swamp Ash or Alder tonewood for the body. The Huntington’s maple neck has a smooth, black satin finish and 30” short-scale length, with a glued in, set-neck joint that provides ergonomic access to the entire rosewood fretboard. The set neck design, premium woods and high-end hardware along with the unique, vintage correct Supro pickups make the Huntington both a world-class recording bass and gigging workhorse instrument that is incredibly easy to play; especially for musicians accustomed to the shorter neck of a 6-string guitar.
The three-pickup Huntington III model pulls out all the stops with a trio of full-sized gold foil pickups and a piezo bridge as stock hardware. The magnetic pickups in the Huntington III are wired with individual volume controls, allowing the player to dial in a tremendous range of tones, from vintage to modern and all points in between. A push/pull switch on the tone control activates the piezo pickups, which are located in the bridge saddles. With the piezo activated, the tone control functions as a blender for “acoustic” sounds or enhanced attack (especially effective for pick and slap techniques), unleashing an unprecedented range of sounds from this passive, short-scale bass.
