Eastwood Hooky Bass 4 PRO
In the summer of 2017, we were given unique access to one of Peter Hook’s original Shergold Marathon 6 Bass guitars, an instrument that has always been a core part of Hooky’s unique style/sound, and an integral part of the sound of Joy Division and New Order.
With this level of accessibility to a Hooky original Shergold, we were able to go into microscopic detail, and, pretty much, create a clone of it which became the Hooky Bass 6 PRO.
After the success of the Hooky Bass 6 PRO, we thought there should be also be a 4 string version for those seeking the more traditional bass sound while also making this an ideal option for the guitar player who wants to play bass. We kept the same look and many of the same specs of the Bass 6 PRO, resulting in the Hooky Bass 4 PRO.
This first production run is limited to 32 pieces total, 16 of each color.
