Allen Woody Signature Bass

Woody, who passed away in August 2000, was an avid collector of vintage Epiphone basses, and his signature model has such classic features as a short scale (30 inches) for easier play, mini-humbucking pickups in the neck and middle position for a warm tone, rich Wine Red finish and gold-plated hardware.
The body of the Woody model is a semi-hollow single-cutaway archtop, similar to that of Epiphone's popular Kat series models but without f-holes.

Features
  • Semi-hollow, single-cutaway, archtop body without f-holes
  • 30" short-scale neck
  • Mini-humbucking pickups in the neck and middle positions
  • Gold hardware
  • Case sold separately

Accurately named!

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

This bass delivers exactly what it promises...LOTS of bottom. It will shake the rafters. Well made, beautiful instrument, but the "nose dive" is really bad, and will hamper your playing. Very distracting. Since 1965, I've owned and played almost every make of short scale bass out there. This one is top quality except for the balance problem. Note: If you want a twangy, treble-y sound, keep shopping - this bass won't fill the bill.

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

I've recently fallen in love with this beautiful bass , I've herd some good reviews and some bad personally I'm still going to go for it, my head says theres something special about this bass and it would make a great new edition to my small but ever growing collection a vintage metal axe and a music man sting ray( at the moment missing its sting cause the strap came loose :.| stupid strap.)Even if it is smaller and does have a different sound it will grow on me, I don't see how anyone can rubbish this bass then again... each to there own, I will B purchasing this bass within the next few months. xx much love xx and have a good 05 Xmas!

I watched it in action!!!

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

Last Friday I received my preordered 2CD+DVD of Gov't mule's live in New Orleans where many bassisits participated in the great absence of the great late Allen Woody. Will Lee performed with the signature model Epiphone rumble kat bass and although I knew that the stage was set perfectly in terms of general sound the bass was excellent. It sounded punchy and with rich tone taking into account that we are talking about a trio plus keyboards and the bass plays a significant role, not to mention that this bass looks perfect. I have pre-ordered it and I am looking forward for that date in March 2004 when I will be holding the bass in my hands.

Epiphone's Best Short-Scale Ever

By 

from West Memphis, AR.

Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

I didn't used to have a high opinion of short-scale basses, I found then thumpy with no sustain and often neck heavy. Epiphone has cured those problems with this bass. While being muddy and deep sounding like most Epiphone/Gibson short-scales, it has great sustain and clean sounding electronics. The fit and finish is first rate, with a beautiful wine red paint job. It's the first Epiphone of this type that doesn't have a gigantic head stock and over-sized tuning keys to make it neck heavy. It's hollow body gives it a deep rumbling sound. Allan and Epiphone did a great job of designing a bass to overcome the weaknesses of their earlier basses of this type. The tone is the only drawback. If you like the low rumbling deep sound, you will love it, but that is the only sound you will get out of it. The tone knob turned up all the way will give the sound more definition, but it will still be pretty murky. But this is fine for those who like the sound for the style they play. Being such an attractive and good sounding instrument, I can't understand why this bass doesn't cost more, but I'm glad I got it for the price it is. Great bass for blues, country, and Motown sounds.
