Supro Huntington 1 Shortscale
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.
Although its scale is short, the sound of the Huntington bass is astoundingly large—boasting a tight, confident, buttery low end, articulate midrange and crisp highs. The single pickup Huntington I model projects a warm, balanced sound with a passive tone control that acts as an “old-school” knob, taming the highs and drawing the bass deeper back into the mix. A piezo equipped bridge option adds in an acoustic bass sound via toggle switch. When the piezo pickups are activated, the tone knob functions as a blender, allowing the player to mix in the acoustic sound to taste.
